The H-Cube Midiâ„¢ represents the first step in the ThalesNano, Inc.â€™s development towards process scale-up flow hydrogenation. Utilizing current H-CubeÂ® technology, the H-Cube Midiâ„¢ seeks to increase the capacity of the present H-CubeÂ® to 500 g per day without compromising efficiency and safety. The H-Cube Midiâ„¢ will allow users of the H-CubeÂ® to scale up reactions and achieve the same result. The H-Cube Midiâ„¢ system works through the hydrogenation of a continuous flow of substrate. The substrate is flowed through the system using an automatically controlled piston-pump at flow-rates up to 25 mL/min. Once entering the H-Cube Midiâ„¢ reaction line, the flow of substrate is mixed with a continuous flow of hydrogen. The hydrogen is created by the electrolysis of water within an electrolytic cell. The electrolytic cell is based on the original H-CubeÂ® cell, but has been modified for a larger output of hydrogen. The hydrogen gas and a solution of the reactant are mixed, pre-heated and transferred to a catalyst cartridge (MidiCartâ„¢) that is preloaded with the required heterogeneous catalysts.
