Who we are

ThalesNano Inc. is an innovation-driven company focusing on the development of bench-top flow chemistry instruments and solutions for synthetic chemical challenges.

The company was founded in 2002 in Budapest, Hungary. Since then, ThalesNano operates globally, with the help of our US office and worldwide distributor network. Currently, more than 1500 of our instruments are used worldwide. Our mission is to make flow chemistry part of the daily laboratory routine and to make chemical processes safer, easier, and more effective. We put a great emphasis to support research and development by aiding scientific collaborations and education.

Our first instrument on the market, the H-Cube® continuous flow hydrogenation reactor was launched in 2004. The instrument was ground-breaking with its innovative hydrogen generator coupled with the advantages of flow chemistry technology. It has received the R&D Top 100 Award and is used in hundreds of laboratories globally. During recent years, the H-Cube® has become the new industry standard for hydrogenation.

In response to market needs, ThalesNano has developed new continuous flow reactors to cover an extended chemical space in terms of both pressure and temperature. Nowadays, the company has the widest portfolio of laboratory-scale instruments for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, fine chemical, flavor and fragrance, agrochemical, and petrochemical markets, as well as for academic research groups and education.

Our family of products solves daily problems with difficult or dangerous reactions. We offer a convenient and safe alternative with easy reproducibility. In addition, with a temperature range from -70 to 1000°C and pressure from vacuum to 200 bar a new chemical parameter window is achievable, that is otherwise unreachable in batch processes.

Our values

Our mission is to bring flow hydrogenation to the mainstream chemistry practice and have innovative quality instruments that serve the needs of scientists.

After 16 years on the market, since the launch of the award-winning H-Cube, ThalesNano continues to be the leader in flow chemistry solutions for pharmaceutical and agrochemical early stage research and development. Our family of products solves daily problems in transforming difficult or dangerous reactions to be performed conveniently and safely with easy reproducibility. In addition, with temperature ranges from -70°C to 1000°C and pressure from vacuum to 200 bar, a wide range of chemistry space is achievable that is otherwise unthinkable in batch processes.

Building on our experiences, our objectives for the coming period are to bring flow chemistry into the daily work practice of every chemistry laboratory. This is particularly true of hydrogenation, where the new generation of accessible and simple H-Cubes (with built-in hydrogen generation) should replace autoclaves and shakers as the standard, improving safety, reliability and convenience.

Other flow chemistry solutions, like the Phoenix Flow Reactor, IceCube and Flash Pyrolysis Platform, supported by our own research and that of our partners, enable chemists to discover unexplored chemical space, design and synthesize novel compounds and libraries, advancing research beyond its current boundaries.

We are committed to design instruments of the highest quality, make them intuitive to use and meet the needs of chemists in the lab today and in the lab of the future!
