Furfural and its derivatives have been extensively used in agrochemical industries. Furfural is a natural precursor to a range of furan-based chemicals and solvents such as dihydropyran, methyltetrahydrofuran, tetrahydrofuran, methylfuranfurfuryl alcohol, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol and furoic acid.
Biomass-based chemical with exceptional physical properties, used as a reactive chemical, solvent and chemical feedstock for derivatives
Used in traditional furan resins and foundry sands, and subject to catalytic hydrogenation to produce further derivatives.
Biodegradable, biomass-based solvent used in agrochemical formulations, cleaning products and paint strippers.
Green extraction solvent used in the pharmaceutical industry and in alternative fuels.
Intermediate for other chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
