Furfuryl alcohol, CAS 98-00-0, is yellowish liquid. When exposed in sunlight or air, it will become brown or crimson. It can mix dissolving with water, but doesn't dissolve in paraffin. Furfuryl alcohol, CAS 98-00-0, is flammable and has bitter flavor. If mixed with acid, the liquid would easily polymerize and violently explode.
Furfuryl alcohol, CAS 98-00-0, is widely used in chemical industry. As one of raw materials of organic synthesis, it can be used to make levulic acid, furfuryl alcohol-uric acid resin and phenol aldehyde resin, etc. Furfuryl alcohol, CAS 98-00-0, is superior to butyl, octyl alcohol esters in cold resistance. It is the good solvent of furan resins, varnish, pigment and rocket fuel. In addition, it is also applied in synthetic fibers, rubber, agriculture chemical and casting industry, etc.
Furfuryl alcohol, CAS 98-00-0, should be stored in dark, cool, dry and ventilated places, avoiding ignition materials. It should be separated from strong acids, oxidants and food.
