2-Methylfuran (CAS 534-22-5) is a direct derivative of furfural produced by a high-temperature hydrogenolysis reaction. It is used as a chemical intermediate for a number of pharmaceutical products by means of ring opening, substitution and rearrangement reactions, and is the sole raw material for the industrial production of 2-methyltetrahydrofuran.
2-Methylfuran in practice
2-Methylfuran is a furfural derivative obtained by a high-temperature hydrogenolysis reaction. It has applications as an intermediate for other chemicals and pharmaceuticals, including antimalarial drugs and perfumes. As an oxygenated fuel additive, it has potential as a next-gen drop-in biofuel.
