Abstract
The physical properties, synthesis, industrial uses, and the extent of occupational exposure to tetrahydrofuran (109999) (THF) are reviewed. Domestic producers and distributors of THF are identified, and the production processes involving furfural (98011), acetylene (74862), and formaldehyde (50000) are described. Various commercial uses of THF and consumption patterns are described, and production statistics are presented. Industries that use THF are discussed and the extent of THF exposure potentials represented is examined. A list of trade associates, professional societies, unions and other organizations that may be involved with using THF in some manner is provided.
