ThalesNano Announces the Launch of H-Cube Tutor(TM)- a Simple and Safe Reactor to Enable Undergraduates and Researchers to Perform Hydrogenation as Pa

BUDAPEST, Hungary | Posted on June 7th, 2007

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."


About ThalesNano Nanotechnology Inc.
ThalesNano is a technology-intensive company that provides solutions
for leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies from all over the
world. It is specialized in developing and providing microscale flow
instruments for chemistry, by exploiting the benefits of combining
microfluidics, mezofluidics or nanotechnology with flow chemistry.

The award winning development, H-Cube(R), has been recognized as one of
the 100 most technologically significant and innovative new products of
2005 By R&D Magazine is the first in a new wave of continuous-flow
hydrogenation reactors. Utilizing water electrolysis to generate hydrogen,
with a catalyst cartridge system and with a continuous-flow reactor, the
shoe-box sized H-Cube(R) makes hydrogenation convenient, more efficient and
less hazardous. With this equipment, reactions that are almost impossible
to carry out under normal circumstances can be performed. The product is
already on the market.
