HyperSolar, Inc. Key Developments
HyperSolar, Inc. Appoints Yat Li as Scientific Advisor
Mar 31 15
HyperSolar, Inc. announced that it has appointed Dr. Yat Li, an Associate Professor of Chemistry with University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), as Scientific Advisor to the company. Dr. Li has significant experience in exploring and developing hydrogen fuel producing technologies. In 2009, Dr. Li and other researches from UCSC began developing a concept that created hydrogen fuel by exposing treated wastewater to sunlight.
HyperSolar, Inc. Reaches 1.25 Volts to Split Water Molecules for the Production of Renewable Hydrogen Fuel
Dec 9 14
HyperSolar, Inc. announced that it had reached 1.25 volts, an important milestone achievement in its effort to split water molecules for the production of renewable hydrogen fuel. HyperSolar's research is centered on developing a low-cost and submersible hydrogen production particle that can split water molecules under the sun, emulating the core functions of photosynthesis. Each particle is a complete hydrogen generator that contains a novel high voltage solar cell bonded to chemical catalysts by a proprietary encapsulation coating. The theoretical minimum voltage needed to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen is 1.23 V. However, in real world systems, 1.5 V or more is generally needed because of the low reaction kinetics. So far, other researchers have only been able to achieve this voltage level through the use of either inefficient materials, such as titanium oxide, or very expensive semiconductors, such as gallium arsenide. Also, overcoming the corrosive degradation of these 'artificial photosynthesis' systems remains a monumental challenge and has thus far eluded commercialization. The company has previously solved the degradation problem through the use of its patent-pending protective coating, which has demonstrated long stability. Now, with 1.25 V of water splitting voltage through an inexpensive but efficient solar absorber, the company has achieved something that has never been done in a real-world environment. Future development efforts will focus on increasing the currents and photo voltages beyond 1.5 V.
