At the 2019 Nobel Award Ceremony held in Sweden on December 10, 2019, the Royal Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, Sweden awarded this honor to three scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the development of lithium batteries. Among them, John B Goodenough, known as the "father of lithium batteries," took the stage to receive the chemistry award in a wheelchair. He set the record for the oldest award-winning age at the age of 97, as the oldest promise Bell Prize winner, he has made pioneering contributions to lithium batteries.
He also accepted this award with M. Stanley Whittingham, the "father of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries" from Binghamton University, and Akira Yoshino, a researcher at Asahi Kasei Group and professor at Meijo University. Akira Yoshino used it in 1983 The lithium cobalt oxide cathode and polyacetylene anode produced the world's first rechargeable lithium ion battery prototype.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for lithium battery may be a belated glory for the entire industry, but it is also a high recognition of the development and progress of lithium battery. The Nobel Prize is the highest affirmation of major theoretical innovations, inventions and creations, and requires a long period of practical verification. The Lithium battery won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry this time, which is an inspiration to the entire lithium battery industry. It not only proves the popularity of lithium battery, but also affirms the influence of lithium battery on the world.
