Company Adds Two Key Players to Accelerate Its Nanoparticle Development
SANTA BARBARA, CA – June 5, 2012 - HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCBB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced the addition of Dr. Syed Mubeen Jawahar Hussaini and Wei Cheng to the company’s technology development team.
Dr. Hussaini will lead HyperSolar’s development of a low cost, solar powered nanoparticle technology for extracting renewable hydrogen from water. He received his bachelor’s degree in Chemical and Electrochemical engineering from the Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CECRI), India, and his master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, India. He earned his Ph.D. degree in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Riverside in 2009 and is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Hussaini holds significant proficiency in developing nanostructure based solar-active materials for solar fuel production and investigating fundamental energy conversion processes using plasmonic nanosystems. Dr. Hussaini has published over 15 peer-reviewed papers.
Under the direction of Dr. Hussaini, Mr. Wei Cheng has been assigned to focus on high efficiency hydrogen extraction from organic waste in wastewater using low cost and environmentally friendly semiconducting materials as photocatalysts. Mr. Cheng received his bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Technology from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and his master’s degree in Materials Physics and Chemistry from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), China. He began his Ph.D. research in 2008 at SJTU and is currently a visiting scholar at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His current research is on hydrogen production using low voltage electrooxidation of organic wastewater and preparation of non toxic metal sulfide semiconductors with low cost materials such as tin sulfide (SnS).
HyperSolar recently entered into a yearlong sponsored research agreement with the University of California, Santa Barbara to help accelerate the development process and assure that the key milestones are reached.
About HyperSolar, Inc.
HyperSolar is developing a breakthrough, low cost technology to make renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, including seawater and wastewater. Unlike hydrocarbon fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas, where carbon dioxide and other contaminants are released into the atmosphere when used, hydrogen fuel usage produces pure water as the only byproduct. By optimizing the science of water electrolysis at the nano-level, our low cost nanoparticles mimic photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from water, to produce environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using our low cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to enable a world of distributed hydrogen production for renewable electricity and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
