H-Cube® Midi

This product is discontinued. For an alternate for scale-up reactions, please check out our Phoenix - H-Genie® Platform



  • No need of gas cylinders or other external hydrogen sources
  • Can be used in standard laboratories
  • No need of catalyst filtration or direct catalyst handling
  • Easy catalyst exchange


  • Temperature ranges from room temperature to 150 °C
  • Pressure ranges from atmospheric pressure to 100 bar
  • Flow rates from 3 to 25 mL/min


  • Increase reaction speed and conversion ratios due to more proficient phase mixing
  • Easy-to-use, touch screen controlled
  • Hydrogen introduction can be adjusted and controlled to improve selectivity

How does it work?

  • A continuous flow of substrate is combined with hydrogen, generated in situ from electrolysis of water
  • The hydrogen/substrate mixture can be heated and pressurized up to 150°C (302°F) and 100 bars (1450 psi) respectively
  • The mixture is then passed through a catalyst filled cartridge (MidiCart), where the reaction takes place at elevated flow rate up to 25 mL/min
  • Product is generated for faster analytical screening
  • Reactions varying in scale from 10 g to 500 g can be performed on the same compact reactor

Compatible with Phoenix Flow Reactor™ for wider chemistry space

The Phoenix Flow Reactor™ is a powerful instrument. Its reaction zone can be heated up to 450 °C and is compatible with multiple types and sizes of reaction zones (CatCarts®, MidiCarts™, coil reactors, metal-metal sealed catalyst columns). When connected, the two reactors are controlled separately on their own and it is possible to have the high-throughput flow and hydrogen generation from the H-Cube® Midi with the versatility and high-temperature of the Phoenix Flow Reactor™.
