About Tetrahydrofuran (THF) Distilled 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.
Distilled Grade chemicals possess a high level of purity and are produced by the distillation process.
