American Chemical Society Journal highlights work on low cost nanoparticles for solar to hydrogen production performed by HyperSolar's research team at the University of California, Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HyperSolar, Inc. (OTC:HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced that an overview of its patent pending technology using solar powered nanoparticles to produce hydrogen from water has been published in "Nano Letters," the monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society.

The article reports the successful demonstration of photoelectrochemically active heterostructures fabricated with inexpensive materials and a protective coating for the semiconductor absorber producing photoelectrochemical activity over many hours in a strongly acidic electrolyte, producing chemical products with light as the only energy input. A link to the abstract for obtaining the full article is here:

"We are very pleased to see the incredible work performed by our research team at the University of California, Santa Barbara gain recognition in such an esteemed publication," commented Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. "The key to this demonstration is our patent pending low cost polymer protective coating that allows us to protect photovoltaic materials against photocorrosion.

"An economically viable form of truly renewable hydrogen production is vital to our future for both transportation needs and energy storage needs," continued Young. "We believe this research holds the key to the greenest form of hydrogen production."

HyperSolar is engaged in an 18 month 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.
