Professor Rachid Yazami's Graphite Anode Helps Power Your Mobile Phone

Interview source:  A Magazine Singapore:

Yazami invented the graphite anode that is a vital component in today’s rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The French-Moroccan came up with the invention back in 1980 as a research student working in France. Since then he has been behind more than 150 patents relating to battery technology and founded six start-up companies across the US and Singapore. 

This patent was filed in the US back in 2007, proving Yazami’s point that some inventions can be too early. “It takes a long time for new inventions to be adopted by the battery industry. But when you don’t believe in it, you miss the opportunities.”
