There exist the potential that new understandings of Graphite particles (Graphene) could power the next industrial revolution in much the same way that Coal powered the last one!
 
Here are some amazing articles around Graphene (thin sheet scraped off Graphite block) that has amazing chemical & physical properties that has wide host of potential applications like:
-Energy Storage by replacing TiO2 in Solar cells, or making & Capturing both H2 & Electricty in Fuel Cells;
-or as Ultracapacitors where Crystals of 2 dimensional Graphene behave in different & potential more complex /
better way than the 3 dimensional Silicon. Thus deposing Silicon from the Throne of Computer / Technology applications.
 
I wonder if there isn’t an application for Graphtized Needle Coke in some of these applications since the two often overlap in the Electrode applications for lot same property applications? <Similar to COP’s CPreme* Coke technology application for graphite anode applications in Lithium Ion Batteries for electric cars / fuel cells>
