Tetrahydrofuran(THF)

- Aug 31, 2018 -

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) is a general-purpose, highly volatile organic solvent. It is colorless, water-miscible and mobile liquid. Tetrahydrofuran(THF) offers very good solvent power for numerous organic substances and is used as a starting material for various syntheses.

At present, Tetrahydrofuran(THF) is produced by either two methos: the Reppe process and the furfural process. The Reppe process is preferred over the furfural process as the former is completely synthetic, and thus unlike its counterpart, the availability of raw material is not dependent on agricultural conditions.

In spite of being used as a starting material for various syntheses, Tetrahydrofuran(THF) can be used as a coating agent, adhesive, reaction medium, or extractant.

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) is highly volatile and flammable, so care must be taken that it is stored and handled in an environment where atmospheric oxygen is excluded or limtied. Also due to its volatile nature, care must be taken that the contents are used quickly once the container is opened, as it is said to have limited shelf life post exposure to the environment.

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) distilled pure has many applications as a solvent, reaction medium, or starting product for syntheses. Tetrahydrofuran(THF) can be used alone or along with other solvents in the leather industry as part of coating systems. The magnetic tapes used in electronic devices such as computers can be made abrasion resistant by applying a coat of Tetrahydrofuran(THF).

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) is also used for the production of PVC adhesives as well as for the fabrication of PVC pipe systems that are used in industrial processes in heating and cooling systems.

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) can be used for the production of highly concentrated solutions, due to its high solvent power.

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) is used on a wide scale in the pharmaceutical industry as a reaction medium for the synthesis of organometallic compounds.

Tetrahydrofuran(THF) is said to cause eye irritation, skin problmes, nausea, dizziness, etc. under contditions of prolonged exposure.
