Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol

Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFA) is a biomass-based solvent produced via catalytic hydrogenation of furfuryl alcohol. As a solvent, it is used in agrochemical formulations, cleaning products, metal-working fluids and coating/paint stripper formulations. THFA is biodegradable and water-soluble and does have a low vapor pressure and has excellent solvable properties. It is also used as a chemical intermediate in industrial and pharmaceutical applications.


Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol applications

Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol (THFA) finds applications in the solvent industry as an environmentally benign, biodegradable, water-miscible solvent for agrochemical formulations,  cleaning products, paint strippers and electronic industry.

As a chemical intermediate it is a raw material to produce THFA-ethers and esters which can be used in multiple applications such as adhesives and pharmaceutical applications.
