  • Furfuryl alcohol also called 2-furylmethanol or 2-furancarbinol, is an organic compound containing a furan substituted with a hydroxymethyl group.It is made from furfural bymeans of catalysis with hydrogen added in.
  • It is colorless to light yellow color, transparent liquid with bitter almond smell and becomes brown light yellow or deep red when exposed
    in the air. It can be mixed with water and many organic solvents such as alcohol, ether, acetone etc, but not dissolved in paraffin wax and other hydrocarbon products.
  • Furfuryl alcohol is manufactured industrially by the catalytic reduction of furfural which is obtained from corncobs and sugar cane bagasse. It finds use as a solvent, but is primarily used as an ingredient in the manufacture of various chemical products such as foundry resins, adhesives, and wetting agents.
  • In order to establish the fact that in this investigation furfuryl alcohol was produced in skimmilk by heating. Five gallons of fresh raw skimmilk,were extracted with ether and the ether extract concentrated in the same manner as described for the heated skimmilk. The results of these tests are sufficient evidence that furfuryl alcohol is not a normal constituent of raw milk but is produced by heat treatment.
  • Furfuryl alcohol has been used in rocketry as a fuel which ignites hypergolically with nitric acid oxidizer. This avoids needing separate igniters. It is one of the organic synthetic raw materials. It can be used to produce all kinds of furan resin, furfuryl alcohol resin and phenol resin and so on. It is also the good solution of vanish and dye. It can be widely used in sythetic febric, rubber,pesticide and foundry industry.
  • The present paper describes two chromatographic methods to determine free FA in several kinds of foundry resins. The
    complexity of their matrices and the presence of interferents were considered.
  • The accuracy of the analytical procedure was assessed through recovery measurements.The resins selected are the most representatives for the Portuguese foundries: furanic, phenolic acid and phenolic alkaline.
  • LC technique was also succeeded when applied to furanic resins. Nevertheless, the existence of interferents in the matrices hindered the use of this technique for phenolic resins. Although the complexity of the foundry resins, the sample pre-treatment selected was a simple extraction process, using methanol as solvent. It was concluded that the developed methods can be implemented in laboratories for routine analysis.
  • China is the world's largest producer of both furfural and furfuryl alcohol. Chinese production of both materials has been increasing significantly. Furfural and furfuryl alcohol production in China is expected to increase at an average annual rate of about 5% over the next five years, but an unexpected shortage of the raw material might affect sustained growth during this period. China is the only major region where furfural production is projected to increase in the next five years.
  • The world's largest furfural producer, Central Romana Corporation in the Dominican Republic, has over 35 thousand metric tons of active annual capacity. According to industry sources, Central Romana's annual furfural output is normally near plant capacity; furfural production serves as the preferred method of disposing of bagasse wastes from sugarcane sugar extraction. Central Romana's furfural plants and the sugarcane processing plants generating bagasse are under the same ownership.
