ThalesNano Announces the Launch of X-Cube Flash(TM), its Next Generation High Temperature and Pressure Continuous Process Reactor

    BUDAPEST, Hungary, PRINCETON, NJ, and LONDON, March 27 /CNW/ - ThalesNano
Inc. today announced the launch of the latest in its Cube(TM) flow reactor
series, the X-Cube Flash(TM). This novel product is validated with several
important chemistry applications. The X-Cube Flash(TM) will be officially
unveiled in the US, at the 235th National Meeting of the of the American
Chemical Society, held April 6-10 in New Orleans, LA, and in Europe at the
Advances in Synthetic Chemistry conference in Frankfurt held on April 8 and 9.
    The X-Cube Flash(TM) is designed to carry out homogenous reactions in
continuous flow mode at high pressure and temperature, operating safely up to
200 bar and 350 degrees C. This enables chemists to significantly expand the
parameter space they can utilize within a regular laboratory setting. The
system is also applicable for doing chemistry under supercritical conditions.
    Dr. Laszlo Urge, CEO of ThalesNano commented: "We call our latest
X-Cube(TM) reactor the "Flash", because most reactions proceed in seconds or
minutes instead of hours. The X-Cube Flash(TM) fulfills the need of our
customers for safe high pressure and temperature homogenous reactions.
    In addition it can be used to scale up microwave assisted reactions
quickly with little method development. Our experience shows that the system
can be utilized to reduce hazardous waste production in many chemical
processes. In certain chemical transformations, it also eliminates the need
for using expensive and toxic heavy metal catalysts fulfilling the
requirements of Green Chemistry. The pharmaceutical industry is increasingly
adopting continuous processes and this system can provide a ready state of the
art solution for testing and optimizing chemistries for continuous process
applications on a larger scale later. The increase in productivity and
chemical efficiency can result in significant cost and time savings for those
R&D organizations who adopt this technology."
    "This product will be a complementary addition to our existing X-Cube(TM)
technology. With its launch we have further diversified our continuous process
technology portfolio giving ThalesNano the widest product range available in
bench top flow chemistry and continuous process technology. The company is
executing a complex strategy designed to provide integrated continuous flow
solutions from discovery to full scale production which could help solve some
of the key bottlenecks in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical
industries" stated Dr. Ferenc Darvas, President and Chairman at ThalesNano.

    About ThalesNano:

    ThalesNano is a world-leading provider of continuous process technologies
and flow chemistry instruments in the rapidly developing market of laboratory
and process scale flow reactors.
    The company has the widest portfolio of bench-top continuous process
instruments. Its H-Cube(R) continuous-flow hydrogenation reactor and the pilot
plant scale version H-Cube Midi(TM) are used in hundreds of laboratories in
four continents and may become the new industry standard for hydrogenation.
    Flow chemistry, an emerging technology, allows the highly effective and
rapid synthesis of organic compounds, in particular under hitherto
unrealisable hazardous reaction conditions. Additional benefits are seen in
the area of Green Chemistry and lab automation. This technology also promotes
the rapid scale-up from mg to kg quantities which in the long run could result
in lower CAPEX and OPEX.
