An Accidental Discovery which proves better than the original one


The Best thing happens unexpectedly as Donald Sadoway, professor of Materials Science in MIT experience this during he is experimenting some chemical.

While he is trying to develop a new kind of high temperature Storage battery, researcher accidentally bumped into a new, more efficient process for smelting metal. Isn’t sound interesting?

Sadoway had originally intended to test a new chemical configuration of high capacity battery, but the experiment wouldn’t hold a charge.

In an Explanation to MIT News, he said, “We were in fact producing liquid antimony instead of charging the battery, it turns out, a new element added to the experimental battery acted as an ionic conductor, causing the antimony sulfide in the experiment to separate.”

Sadoway continued, “The team did further tests with antimony. We could imagine doing the same for copper and nickel, metals that are used in large quantities.” If successful, it could reduce the costs of production and put less harmful gas into the atmosphere.

This new unexpected discovery potentially cheaper, safer and less harmful to the environment than traditional ore processing. Traditional smelting produces large quantities of greenhouse gas, and is a significant contributor of air pollutants whereas new one produced almost none.
