(18) If a battery heats up beyond 80C you hit what is called thermal runaway, where the components start to decompose, and that’s when it can explode.” The specific cause of Samsung’s issues with exploding batteries is unknown, the company just cites “ a battery cell issue ”.
(19) While pure methyl 5-(2-chloroethylamino)-5-deoxy-2,3-O-isopropylidene-beta-D-ribofuranoside hydrochloride has no L-1210 leukemia activity, a decomposed sample was found to be very active.
