Abstract:
ThalesNano Inc. and ETH Zurich, ThalesNano today announced collaboration with the Swiss Federal
Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) on flow chemistry applications. The agreement will focus on the application of chemistries and technologies utilizing ThalesNano's products to solve difficult chemistry applications.

ThalesNano and ETH Zurich Collaborate on Flow Chemistry Technologies

BUDAPEST and ZURICH, Germany | Posted on October 25th, 2007

Dr. Laszlo Urge, CEO of ThalesNano Inc., said, "We are extremely pleased
to be able to collaborate with one of the top research universities in the
world. This collaboration will enable us to utilize our technology and to
jointly develop novel applications that will serve the entire scientific
community. Our products are in use at all major pharmaceutical, agrochemical
and chemistry companies and also support in-house scientists in developing
their own novel applications. The technology developed as part of this
collaboration may result in spin-off opportunities in future."

Professor Peter Seeberger whose laboratory at ETH Zurich is leading the
project said, "We are delighted to have this collaboration with the foremost
company in flow chemistry instrument and application development. This is a
very exciting area of technology, and in it we anticipate being able to
contribute to the development of novel chemistries. There are a lot of
scientific and technical advantages in this field. We are looking forward to
the combined exploration."

Professor Ferenc Darvas, president and chairman of ThalesNano Inc. said:
"This agreement again highlights the interest that the academic world has
shown in using our products, such as H-Cube, H-Cube Tutor and X-Cube, to
develop applications. ETH Zurich and other leading universities are proactive,
taking the lead in application development. Our work with ETH Zurich
underscores that academic collaboration with industry is key to the full
implementation and utilization of novel technologies.

About ThalesNano Inc.
ThalesNano is a technology-intensive company that provides solutions for
leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies all over the world. It
specializes in developing and providing microscale flow instruments for
chemistry by exploiting the benefits of combining microfluidics, mezofluidics
or nanotechnology with flow chemistry. R&D Magazine recognized the award
winning development, H-Cube(TM), as one of the 100 most technologically
significant and innovative new products of 2005. H-Cube(TM) is the first in a
new wave of continuous-flow hydrogenation reactors. Utilizing water
electrolysis to generate hydrogen, a catalyst cartridge system and a
continuous-flow reactor, the shoe-box sized H-Cube(TM) makes hydrogenation
convenient, more efficient and less hazardous. X-Cube is a high-pressure,
high-temperature flow reactor. With these tools, reactions that are almost
impossible to carry out under normal circumstances can be safely performed.

About ETH Zurich

ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) has a student body of
over 13,000 students from 80 nations. Nearly 360 professors teach mainly in
engineering sciences and architecture, system-oriented sciences, mathematics
and natural sciences, as well as carry out research that is highly valued
worldwide. Distinguished by the successes of 21 Nobel laureates, ETH Zurich is
committed to providing its students with unparalleled education and
outstanding leadership skills.
