Nobel Prize 2019 for Chemistry awarded to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino for work on Lithium Ion Batteries

USNMix Report: Nobel Prize to 3 scientists in the field of chemistry.
Simultaneously, John B. Goodenough, born in 1922 in Jena, Germany, speculated that the cathode capacity would have been even greater if it had been made using metal oxide instead of metal sulfide. Goodenough (97) has become the oldest Nobel laureate.


The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Wednesday awarded three scientists the 2019 Nobel Prize in the field of chemistry for the development of lithium-ion batteries. John B. Goodenough of the University of Texas at Austin, M. Stanley Whittingham of Binghamton University and Akira Yoshino of Mizo University will receive 9 million Swedish kronor ($ 912,000) as prizes, which they will distribute equally. According to a press release issued here, three scientists created a rechargeable world, on the basis of which they have been honored.

The press release states, "This light, rechargeable and powerful battery is now used in everything from mobile phones to laptops and electric vehicles." According to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, M. Stanley Whittingham, born in 1941 in Britain, worked on developing methods that enabled the development of fossil fuel-free energy technologies.

The press release stated, 'The foundations of lithium-ion batteries were laid during the oil crisis in the 1970s. He began research on superconductors and discovered an extremely energy-rich material, which he used to make an advanced cathode in lithium batteries.'

Simultaneously, Goodenough, born in 1922 in Jena, Germany, speculated that the cathode capacity would have been even greater if it had been made using metal oxide instead of metal sulfide. Goodenough (97) has become the oldest Nobel laureate.

Born in 1948 in Suita, Japan, Akira Yoshino made the first commercially capable lithium-ion battery in 1985, based on Goodenough's cathode. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry is awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. It is one of the five Nobel Prizes awarded in memory of Alfred Nobel.
