The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded for the development of lithium-ion batteries

  • The 2019 #NobelPrize in Chemistry has been awarded to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino “for the development of lithium-ion batteries.”
  • Lithium-ion batteries have revolutionised our lives and are used in everything from mobile phones to laptops and electric vehicles. Through their work, this year’s Chemistry Laureates have laid the foundation of a wireless, fossil fuel-free society.
  • In the early 1970s, Stanley Whittingham, awarded this year’s Chemistry Prize, used lithium’s enormous drive to release its outer electron when he developed the first functional lithium battery.
  • 2019 Chemistry Laureate John Goodenough doubled the lithium battery’s potential, creating the right conditions for a vastly more powerful and useful battery.
  • This year’s Nobel Prize laureate Akira Yoshino succeeded in eliminating pure lithium from the battery, instead basing it wholly on lithium ions, which are safer than pure lithium. This made the battery workable in practice.

‘Employ local persons in Toll booths’

@PWilsonDMK – Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha :

  • I appeal to Hon’ble Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari ji to ensure that all NHAI Toll booths employ local persons speaking local languages to help public.
  • It is difficult to speak to toll operators in TN who don’t know Tamil or English.
  • NHAI can give locals employment!
