Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol

Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (CAS 97-99-4) 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. Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol 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.


Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol applications

Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol is a furfural derivative obtained by catalytic hydrogenation. It has many applications in various industries. For example, it is used as an environmentally benign, biodegradable, water-miscible solvent for agrochemical formulations (biocides, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides), cleaning products, dyes and resins, and as an ingredient for polymers and resins, lacquers, pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals, and adhesive formulations.
