John Morris Scientific has introduced Thales Nano’s continuous flow hydrogenation reactor, the H-Cube.
The H-Cube continuous flow hydrogenation reactor utilises water electrolysis to generate hydrogen, making hydrogenation safer, more efficient, and easier to use. Reactions up to 100oC and 100 bar can be used on milligram to multi-gram quantities.
The H-Cube continuous flow hydrogenation reactors work by passing the reaction mixture through a flow channel and combining with hydrogen gas at a desired pressure. The mixture is then heated before passing through the catalyst cartridge (CatCart).
The disposable cartridge improves safety and usability, reducing the need for further filtration, therefore avoiding subsequent hazards.
Reaction parameters such as pressure, temperature, flow rate and hydrogen production can be easily controlled and monitored with an easy to use touch screen.
The H-Cube continuous flow hydrogenation reactor is compact, portable and designed to be used within a standard lab fume hood.
