Achievement of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry Akira Yoshino

In response to the fact that Akira Yoshino was selected for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, a talk show was held at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Koto-ku, Tokyo to introduce the achievements of Mr. Yoshino.

The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation has held an event to introduce research that won the Nobel Prize in the past month, and on the 10th, it was planned to introduce the research that was originally selected for the Physics Award, but suddenly, It was replaced with a talk show introducing Yoshino's achievements.

Among these, Mayu Takekoshi, a science communicator, commented on Yoshino ’s achievements: “Batteries that use lithium in development were at risk of explosion, but Yoshino made a safe lithium-ion battery that can be used many times. It was introduced.

On top of that, he emphasized the significance of the research, saying that “It is highly appreciated that it can store electricity generated by solar and wind power generation and contribute to global warming countermeasures”.

A woman in her 50s who heard the story said, “I knew that it was an invention that changed my everyday life.

Mr. Takekoshi of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, said, “I hope this will be an opportunity for children to become interested in familiar sciences, including lithium-ion batteries.”
