QuantumSphere recruits Olah to advisory board

Jan. 12, 2006 — QuantumSphere Inc., a manufacturer of metallic nanopowders, announced that George Olah has joined its scientific advisory board.

Olah, recipient of the 1994 Nobel Prize in chemistry, is the director of the University of Southern California’s Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute and is a distinguished professor in Organic Chemistry.

QuantumSphere supplies magnetic, conductive and catalytic metallic nanopowders, including nickel, silver, copper, cobalt and other proprietary nanoscale alloys. Its metals and nanometal alloys are intended as replacements for a significant portion of platinum, currently the main catalyst in a variety of fuel cells. The company says the materials will also be used in high performance batteries.
