“Plastics Play a Key Role in Lithium-Ion Batteries”
Interview with One of this Year’s Winners of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Dr Akira Yoshino
Lithium-ion batteries are the basis of most mobile devices. Auto manufacturers also rely on them in their electric vehicles. The importance they have now acquired for our society is clearly shown by the award of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2019 to Dr Akira Yoshino, Dr Michael S. Whittingham, and Dr John B. Goodenough for their contributions to the development of lithium-ion batteries. Kunststoffe interviewed Dr Yoshino about the key role plastics play in these batteries and how the range problems of electric vehicles are being solved.
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
