Tetrahydrofuran (THF)

Tetrahydrofuran (THF) is a clear, colorless, low-viscosity liquid with an ether-like odor. THF exhibits high volatility and an extremely low freezing point. At 20°C, THF is completely miscible with water.

THF is a versatile solvent with numerous industrial applications. Due to its tendency to form peroxides on storage, THF is inhibited with BHT.

THF is produced by the cyclodehydration of 1,4-BDO. Lyondell produces 1,4-BDO in a proprietary process starting with allyl alcohol.
