Akira Yoshino is the developer of the first commercially viable lithium-ion battery.

As a young boy, Yoshino discovered chemistry after reading the book 'The Chemical History of a Candle' by Michael Faraday. Although he first dreamed about becoming an archaeologist, luckily for us he went into chemistry and developed lithium-ion batteries.

Yoshino shared the 2019 chemistry prize with Stanley Whittingham and John Goodenough for their research on lithium-ion batteries. They are now working on creating even more sustainable batteries.
