QuantumSphere Clean Energy Expert Dr. Kim McGrath to Present at nanoTX ’06 on Role of Nano Catalysts in Accelerating Commercialization of Clean Energy Sources


Santa Ana, CA – September 25, 2006 – QuantumSphere has announced that Dr. Kim McGrath, Ph.D. has been selected to present at the nanoTX ’06 Conference and Expo in Dallas, TX on Thursday, September 28, at 10:00AM. Entitled “Clean Energy and Power for the Masses," Dr. McGrath’s presentation will provide an important update on the application of nano catalysts in improving the performance of batteries, fuel cells and hydrogen generation from water. She is an expert in the innovative use of these advanced materials to accelerate the commercialization of clean, renewable energy sources.

Dr. McGrath has over five years experience in the design of catalysts, membranes, and components for direct oxidation fuel cells. She has extensive knowledge of fuel cell performance evaluation and electrochemical characterization of anode and cathode catalysts. Dr. McGrath received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Southern California, where she studied composite proton exchange membranes and new binary cathode catalysts with increased activity and methanol tolerance for direct methanol fuel cells. She has been published in the Journal of Indian Engineering Chemistry, Journal of Fluorine Chemistry, and Journal of Power Sources.
