Tetrahydrofuran (also known as THF) is a five-membered cyclic ether with wide application in the chemical industry. Its most important area of application from the standpoint of quantity and turnover is polymerization with simultaneous ring opening to give poly(tetramethylene oxide). THF is also used extensively in the varnish and film industries and as a co-solvent for printing inks and adhesives.
