About Tetrahydrofuran (THF) Anhydrous Grade
Tetrahydrofuran (THF), commonly known as Oxolane, is a compound of four carbons and one oxygen connected in a ring formation to form a cyclic ether. It is a colorless, organic solvent of low viscosity. Because it is of mid-range polarity and miscible with water, it has diverse use as a solvent. It is abundantly utilized as a polymer precursor in various polymer production sectors.
Anhydrous Grade chemicals are slightly purer than the Distilled Grade chemicals. These chemicals are specially designed for specific research and industrial applications.
