  • Description 2-Methyltetrahydrofuran (MeTHF or 2-MTHF) is a bio-based solvent that is recognized as the most favorable of ether solvents. The relatively high boiling point (80?C) and low melting point (-137?C) provide a broad temperature range for a myriad of processing conditions. It is a potential greener solvent alternative for organic synthesis. It shows resistance to reduction by lithium making it a promising candidate as electrolytes in lithium batteries. Its polarity and Lewis base strength is intermediate between tetrahydrofuran (THF) and diethyl ether. The ring opening reaction of 2-MTHF has been studied using acid chloride and iodide.
  • Uses 2-Methyltetrahydrofuran acts as a solvent in organic synthesis. It is considered as a replacement for terahydrofuran due to its higher reaction temperature and easy separation after reaction. It is also useful in the electrolyte formulation for secondary lithium electrodes and as a component in alternative fuels. Further, it is used as a solvent for spectroscopic studies at -1960C. It also acts as a solvent for Grignard reagent in organometallic reactions. In addition to this, it plays an important role as a motor fuel. 2-Methyltetrahydrofuran may be used as solvent for phosphatidylserine synthesis.It may be used as an alternative solvent to:DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) or MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether) in the C-C bond forming reactions catalyzed by lyase enzyme.THF in the reaction between Grignard reagents and carbonyl compounds.Methylene chloride in some biphase reactions. ZerO2 products?are rigorously degassed with highly pure inert gas providing solvents and solutions?(anhydrous if specified)?with very low residual oxygen content.
