About Tetrahydrofuran. Tetrahydrofuran (a.k.a. THF, Oxolane) is an organic compound, in the cyclic ether class. It is a colorless, odorless liquid, miscible with water and most organic solvents. It is an exceptionally versatile solvent, due to its high polarity. Most of its applications are in the chemical industry, especially in polymer production.

Chemical Formula. C4H8O

Commercial Grades. Spectrophotometric (min. 99.9% purity); technical grade (min. 80% purity)

Uses. Polymerization reactions (mainly PTMO); fine chemistry (grignard reactions, hydride reduction and others); cellophane manufacturing (mainly for the packaging industry); solvent welding agent for PVC; solvent for resins, paints, inks, coatings and adhesives; extraction solvent in the pharmaceutical industry

Raw Materials & Production Processes.

  • 1,4-Butanediol (acid-catalyzed dehydration)
  • n-Butane(oxidation, followed by catalytic hydrogenation)
  • Allyl alcohol (hydroformylation, followed by hydrogenation)
