2-Methyltetrahydrofuran (CAS 96-47-9) is a green process extraction solvent used in the pharmaceutical industry for various organometallic catalyzed and biphasic reactions. It is often proposed as a cost-efficient substitute for tetrahydrofuran because of its superior extraction efficiency and product recovery properties. It also has potential to be used in alternative fuels and electrolytic solutions for lithium electrodes in batteries.


MeTHF in practice

2-Methyltetrahydrofuran is a furfural derivative obtained by catalytic hydrogenation. It has applications as a solvent for extraction processes, biphasic reactions, Grignard reactions, in synthesis of substances with biological activity, in organometallic reactions and in alternative fuels and electrolytic solutions for lithium electrodes/batteries.
