Application

3-Furoic acid can be used as a reactant to synthesize:
  • Furan-2,5- and furan-2,4-dicarboxylic acid under solvent-free conditions via disproportionation reaction.
  • (±)-Hyperolactone A by reacting with 2-methylbutanal.
  • Furo[2,3-b]pyridin-4-one-5-carboxylate ester derivatives as potential non-nucleoside inhibitors of human herpesvirus polymerases.

Biochem/physiol Actions

3-Furoic acid exhibits hypolipidemic activity in rodents. It lowers serum cholesterol and serum triglyceride levels in mice and rats.
