General description

Tetrahydrofuran (THF) solution is THF in 20% (v/v) 1,2-propanediol. THF a saturated cyclic ester, is a water-miscible organic solvent. THF has been a widely used industrial solvent for varnishes and PVC (polyvinyl chloride), polymerization, electrochemistry, and pharmaceutical.
The product is a tetrahydrofuran (THF) solution containing 20%(v/v) 1,2-propanediol. THF, a saturated cyclic ester, is a water miscible organic solvent. The combustion studies of THF have been reported.

Application


  • Self-Assembly of Polyoxometalate-Based Nanoparticle Surfactants in Solutions: Highlights the use of Tetrahydrofuran as a critical solvent in the synthesis and self-assembly of polyoxometalate-based nanoparticles, exploring applications that could impact multiple fields including polymer research, drug delivery systems, and nanostructured materials (Xia et al., 2024).

  • Highly sensitive fluorescence turn-OFF and reversible chemical sensor for Hg(2+) ion based on pyrene appended 2-thiohydantoin: Tetrahydrofuran is used as a key solvent in the development of a novel fluorescence-based chemical sensor for mercury detection, demonstrating its application in environmental monitoring and safety in laboratory settings (Gawas et al., 2024).

  • Effect of Plasma pretreatment and Graphene oxide ratios on the transport properties of PVA/PVP membranes for fuel cells: This research employs Tetrahydrofuran as a processing solvent in the creation of polyvinyl alcohol/polyvinylpyrrolidone membranes enhanced with graphene oxide, focusing on improvements in ion transport for fuel cell applications (Abdel-Hamed et al., 2024).

  • Optimized Incorporation of Furan into Diketopyrrolopyrrole-Based Conjugated Polymers for Organic Field-Effect Transistors: Utilizes Tetrahydrofuran as a solvent to aid in the synthesis of novel conjugated polymers, potentially leading to advancements in organic electronics and polymer research (Neu et al., 2024).
