ThalesNano Nanotechnology Inc., announced today that it has launched the latest of its Cube(TM) flow reactor series, H-Cube(R) Tutor which is now commercially available for educational purposes.
Following the H-Cube(R) and X-Cube(TM) reactors, ThalesNano is proud to present the release of the latest in the flow reactor series, the H-Cube TutorTM hydrogenation reactor. The H-Cube Tutor(TM) is the education oriented version of the original R&D Top 100 award winning hydrogenation reactor, the H-Cube(R), and shares the following advantages and features: ELEVATED SAFETY, no hydrogen cylinders necessary (hydrogen is generated from water electrolysis). No catalyst filtering, weighing out, or clean up (catalysts are packed into disposable cartridges), and it can handle reaction temperatures up to 100 Co. It is easy and user friendly to operate, chemists at all level can learn how to use it in minutes.
Dr. Ferenc Darvas, President and Chairman at ThalesNano said: "Undergraduate chemists at many universities are not allowed to practice hydrogenation during their practical session, due to safety concerns with handling hydrogen cylinders and pyrophoric catalysts. It is essential for their future industrial or academic career to gain first hand practical experience with hydrogenation during their educational years, since approximately 5-10% of reactions in the whole of the chemical industry are a kind of hydrogenation."
Dr. Laszlo Urge, CEO commented "With the launch of this new product ThalesNano have a diversified product portfolio that covers a wide market segment for the flow chemistry applications of laboratory scale synthesis from the academic to the industrial."
