Description

Application

Furfuryl alcohol has been used as a carbon source in the synthesis of titanium carbide nanofibers/nanoribbons, applicable in the carbide-derived carbon (CDC) material preparation.
It can also be used:
  • As a starting material to synthesize ethyl levulinate, a biofuel from lignocellulosic residues.
  • To prepare colloidal microporous carbon spheres, applicable as adsorbents and catalyst supports.
  • As a starting material to prepare cyclopentanone through aqueous phase hydrogenation reaction using metal catalysts.

General description

Furfuryl alcohol is an efficient trapping agent for singlet oxygen determination in natural waters. Mechanism of acid-catalyzed polycondensation of furfuryl alcohol has been investigated.
