It is mainly used as a replacement for THF in specialized applications for its better performance, such as to obtain higher reaction temperatures, or easier separations (as, unlike THF, it is not miscible with water). It is derived from furfural and is usable as a biofuel.
Intermediates of Chloroquine Phosphate.

2-methyltetrahydrofuran is used as a green solvent. It can replace tetrahydrofuran as a Grignard reaction solvent, and can also replace benzene, toluene, chloroform and other solvents. It is widely used in the synthesis of perfumes, new materials, etc.
170kgs/drum, can also be packaged according to customer requirements.
