The 2019 Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been announced. Three scientists, John Goodenough, Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino, have been jointly awarded the coveted prize for their development of lithium-ion batteries.

In a tweet, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm today said the laureates laid the foundation of a wireless and fossil-fuel-free society. Goran Hansson, Secretary-General of the Academy, said, the prize was about a rechargeable world.


John Goodenough of the University of Texas is the oldest laureate ever awarded a Nobel prize. M Stanley Whittingham is from the State University of New York at Binghamton and Akira Yoshino of Asahi Kasei Corporation and Meijo University in Japan.
