1. Chemical Solvent 99% Furfural can well dissolve aromatic hydrocarbons and olefins. Therefore, it is widely used in refining lubricating oil, improving diesel oil quality, refining animal and vegetable oils, and making resins and waxes.
2. 2-Furaldehyde can also be used as raw material for production and reprocessing, such as production of furfural resin and production of furfural hydrogenation products.
3. Furfural is also widely used in medicine, antiseptic, bactericide, rust remover and cosmetics industries.
4. It is used as raw material for organic synthesis, as well as synthetic resin, varnish, pesticide, medicine, rubber and paint.
5. It is mainly used to prepare furfuryl alcohol, furoic acid, tetrahydrofuran γ- Industrial solvent of pentolactone, pyrrole, tetrahydropyrrole, etc. and used as analytical reagent.
6. Furfural is a very important organic chemical intermediate, which can be used to prepare pentanediol, acetylpropanol, pentadiene, ketones, methyl tetrahydrofuran, etc.
