California Secretary of State Tours QuantumSphere, Inc.
Santa Ana, CA | Posted on March 10, 2006
California Secretary of State, Bruce
McPherson, recently visited QuantumSphere, the leading manufacturer of
nanoscale metals and alloys for applications in energy, electronics,
aerospace and other markets demanding advanced materials. McPherson met with
the company's top management and scientists to learn more about the company
and this rapidly emerging technology that offers dramatic performance
advances in a number of applications including high performance batteries
and renewable energy devices such as micro fuel cells for portable power.
"California's role as the gateway to the world provides a unique opportunity
to be involved in new emerging markets," said Secretary McPherson. "In order
to be competitive in the global marketplace, we must build a California that
is ready to compete globally for generations to come," McPherson added.
Discussion with the Secretary focused on the role of nanometals and alloys
as a revolutionary solution to fundamental challenges associated with cost
and performance in critical consumer and industrial applications;
partnerships with global chemical, scientific, educational and governmental
entities that QuantumSphere has developed to validate new material uses and
drive the technology and commercialization forward; the role of
California-based companies in continuing to position the state as a world
center of innovation; and environmental and safety issues associated with
the manufacture and use of nanomaterials in consumer and industrial
products. The Secretary toured the QuantumSphere’s R&D and manufacturing
facilities and participated in hands-on demonstrations using QSI-Nano™
metals and alloys for various applications in batteries, fuel cells and
water electrolysis. The tour commenced with an overview of the
QuantumSphere’s production facility and sophisticated systems required to
scale manufacturing and ship commercial products.
"The ability to produce nano metals and alloys in mass quantities while
leveraging their use in commercial applications, is truly a disruptive
technology which has resulted in significant demand for our products,"
explained Kevin Maloney, QuantumSphere co-Founder, President and CEO.
"These materials have the potential to generate very fundamental
advancements in critical areas of our lives. QuantumSphere’s current IP
focus is on end-use applications within the energy sector. Material
applications in this and other areas are endless. We are very excited to
help the State of California lead the global competitive charge within the
nanotechnology sector by working with our customers and partners from our
base in Southern California," Maloney added.
QuantumSphere is the leading manufacturer of metallic nanopowders and alloys
for applications in energy, electronics, aerospace and other markets
demanding advanced materials. QuantumSphere's exclusive manufacturing
process provides consistent and narrow particle size distribution, low
levels of agglomeration and impurities, a custom-tailored oxide shell
thickness, and the highest purity metallic nanopowders on the market that
are easier to transport and handle. The company accomplishes this without
compromising its commitment to the environment and the community. No other
company offers these performance advantages.
QuantumSphere is the only supplier of the world's highest quality magnetic,
conductive and catalytic metallic nanopowders, including QSI-nano™ nickel,
silver, copper, cobalt and other proprietary nanoscale alloys. QSI-nano™
metals and nanometal alloys are now replacing a significant portion of
platinum, currently the main catalyst in a variety of fuel cells providing a
renewable source of power to supply the world's energy needs. These
materials will also be used in high performance battery electrodes. The
company is leveraging its leading market position in metallic powders to
manufacture and ship materials and devices for applications in batteries,
fuel cells, conductive inks, magnetic coatings and membrane filtration
