Using a smartphone? You can thank these 3 scientists who just won 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
"They created a rechargeable world." This is how the Nobel Committee described three scientists who are getting the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2019. These are also the three scientists who you can thank for the latest smartphone, whether it is the iPhone 11 or the shiny OnePlus 7T, that you are using. This is because the three scientists just got the award for working on technologies that made lithium ion batteries possible and it is these batteries that are inside the smartphones powering super high-resolution displays and crazy fast processors.
The three scientists who get the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2019 are: John B Goodenough, Akira Yoshino and M Stanley Whittingham.
