Thales Nanotechnology, Inc. announced today that its development has been recognized as one of the 100 most technologically significant and innovative new products of 2005 by R&D Magazine. The award winning development, H-Cube, 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 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 and Thales Nanotechnology expects that it will revolutionize catalytic hydrogenation in the next decade, Dr. Ferenc Darvas, President and Chairman of Thales Nanotechnology, said. H-Cube has already been purchased by leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as well as academic institutions in the United States and Europe.
