On-demand hydrogen generation and continuous flow technology

Since our groundbreaking launch of the H-Cube® continuous flow hydrogenation reactor in 2005, ThalesNano has been at the front line of revolutionizing laboratory hydrogenation. The H-Cube® quickly gained recognition, receiving the prestigious R&D Top 100 Award in 2005, and has become synonymous with flow hydrogenation. Our series of reactors have transformed how researchers approach chemical reactions, providing a gateway to the world of flow chemistry. This paradigm shift in the field has not only required a fresh perspective, but has also rewarded scientists with unique solutions and enhanced efficiency. At ThalesNano, we prioritize supporting this shift by placing a strong emphasis on ease-of-use throughout the development of our instruments. We take pride in guiding and educating our users, ensuring they unlock the highest potential of this technology. Today, our portfolio encompasses a range of continuous flow reactors that cover an extensive chemical space, catering to the diverse needs of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, fine chemical, flavor and fragrance, agrochemical, and petrochemical markets. Our commitment to advancing the field and promoting education continues to shape our offerings, enabling researchers to achieve remarkable breakthroughs with our instruments.

Our portfolio

At ThalesNano, our product family is designed to address daily challenges associated with difficult or hazardous reactions. We provide a convenient and safe alternative with easy reproducibility. Our instruments unlock a new chemical parameter window, allowing researchers to achieve temperatures up to 450°C and pressures up to 200 bar that are otherwise unreachable in traditional batch processes. The H-Cube® series instruments, combining on-demand hydrogen generation with a continuous flow environment, have set a new standard for laboratory-scale hydrogenations. Furthermore, our Phoenix flow systems enhance the effectiveness and safety of chemical processes across an extended chemical parameter window. These advancements have not gone unnoticed, as our commitment to innovation has been recognized by esteemed industry experts. The H-Genie® hydrogen generator was awarded the R&D Top 100 Award in 2019, while the PhotoCube photoreactor received the same distinction in 2021.
