Furfuryl Alcohol Production Cost Analysis 2020
Furfuryl alcohol is an organic compound holding a furan substituted with a hydroxymethyl group. In appearance, it is a colourless liquid, but aged samples appear amber. It possesses a faint odour of burning and has a bitter taste. While it is miscible in water, it is unstable in nature. It is soluble in common organic solvents. Its boiling point is around 171°F. It is denser than water.
Furfuryl alcohol is produced commercially by the hydrogenation of furfural, which is itself typically manufactured from waste biomass like the corncobs or sugar cane bagasse. The most common use of furfuryl alcohol is as a monomer for the synthesis of furan resins. These polymers are used in cement, thermoset polymer matrix composites, adhesives, coatings, and casting/foundry resins. Polymerisation involves an acid-catalysed polycondensation, generally giving a black cross-linked product.
