Michael Stanley Whittingham 1970

British chemist M. Stanley Whittingham started researching lithium battery in the early 1970s. He discovered how to store lithium ions using titanium(IV) sulphide and lithium metal as the electrodes.

He discovered the intercalation electrodes and invented the first rechargeable lithium-ion battery, patented in 1977.

He is known as the Founding Father of lithium-ion batteries. Whittingham, along with John B. Goodenough and Akira Yoshino, was awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
