Tetrahydrofuran (THF)


Tetrahydrofuran Instruction:

Tetrahydrofuran is a heterocyclic organic compound with the molecular formula C4H8O. THF belongs to the group of ethers and is a fully hydrogenated product of furan, a colorless, water miscible organic liquid with a low viscosity at room temperature and pressure. The chemical formula of this cyclic ether can be written as (CH2)4O. Due to its long liquid range, THF is a commonly used medium-polar nonprotonic solvent. Its main use is as a precursor for polymers. Although the odor and chemical properties of tetrahydrofuran are very similar to those of ether, its anesthetic effect is very poor.

THF Functions and Uses:

Tetrahydrofuran is an important raw material for organic synthesis, especially suitable for dissolving PVC, PVC and nitrile, widely used as a solvent for surface coating, anti-corrosion coating, printing ink, tape and film coating, and also as a reaction solvent for aluminum plating solution, which can arbitrarily control the thickness and brightness of aluminum layer. Tetrahydrofuran itself can be condensed (through cation-initiated ring-opening repolymerization) into polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG), also known as tetrahydrofuran homopolymerization ether.

THF Storage precautions:

Normally, polymerization inhibitors are added to the commodity. Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from sources of fire and heat. Storage temperature should not exceed 30°C. Packaging requirements are sealed and should not be in contact with air. Should be stored separately from oxidizing agents, acids and bases. Do not mix and store. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities. Prohibit the use of spark-prone machinery and tools. The storage area should be equipped with spill emergency handling equipment and suitable protective materials.
