Investors seek class action status in lawsuit over St. Jude implantable defib batteries
Abbott (NYSE:ABT) is facing an investor suit from an Alaskan union-benefits fund over allegations that St. Jude Medical, which it closed its acquisition of in January, failed to notify regulators about defective lithium batteries in its implantable defibrillators. In the lawsuit, plaintiffs allege that St. Jude was informed of the battery defect “as early as 2011”, but it failed to take action and would wait 5 years before issuing a recall for the devices. St. Jude received 42 product reports which showed “evidence of premature battery depletion due to lithium cluster bridging,” court documents...

Abbott (NYSE:ABT) said today that it’s upgrading the implantable pacemakers and defibrillators it acquired when it paid $25 billion for St. Jude Medical earlier this year, seeking to move beyond battery and cybersecurity issues that haver plagued it for a year. Last October St. Jude warned of a battery issue that could disable its high-voltage cardiac rhythm management devices, saying the problem was associated with 2 deaths among the nearly 400,000 patients implanted with affected devices. The issue stemmed from the formation of lithium clusters in the lithium-based batteries used ...

Could adding lithium to tap water reduce dementia levels?
Conclusion The study is intriguing because we already know that lithium affects how the brain and nervous system work through many different pathways. However, the results are difficult to interpret. The study seemed to suggest that lithium levels of more than 15 micrograms per litre could be protective against dementia in comparison with the lowest levels. However, that doesn't explain why levels of 5 to 10 micrograms per litre seemed to increase the risk of dementia in comparison with the lowest levels. It's possible that some other factors – linked to where people live but not necessarily...

Highly elastic binders integrating polyrotaxanes for silicon microparticle anodes in lithium ion batteries
Lithium-ion batteries with ever-increasing energy densities are needed for batteries for advanced devices and all-electric vehicles. Silicon has been highlighted as a promising anode material because of its superior specific capacity. During repeated charge-discharge cycles, silicon undergoes huge volume changes. This limits cycle life via particle pulverization and an unstable electrode-electrolyte interface, especially when the particle sizes are in the micrometer range. We show that the incorporation of 5 weight % polyrotaxane to conventional polyacrylic acid binder imparts extraordinary elasticity to the polymer networ...

Quantum and isotope effects in lithium metal
The crystal structure of elements at zero pressure and temperature is the most fundamental information in condensed matter physics. For decades it has been believed that lithium, the simplest metallic element, has a complicated ground-state crystal structure. Using synchrotron x-ray diffraction in diamond anvil cells and multiscale simulations with density functional theory and molecular dynamics, we show that the previously accepted martensitic ground state is metastable. The actual ground state is face-centered cubic (fcc). We find that isotopes of lithium, under similar thermal paths, exhibit a considerable difference i...
