Stockholm, Oct 9 (TIWN) The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry on Wednesday has been awarded to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino "for the development of lithium-ion batteries".

The prize went to John B. Goodenough, 97, a German-born engineering professor at the University of Texas; M. Stanley Whittingham, 77, a British-American chemistry professor at the State University of New York at Binghamton; and Japan’s Akira Yoshino, 71, of Asahi Kasei Corporation and Meijo University.  Goodenough is the oldest ever recipient of a Nobel Prize.  The three each had a set of unique breakthroughs that cumulatively laid the foundation for the development of a commercial rechargeable battery.
