Background and Overview
2-Furoic Acid is also called 2- furanic acid and pyroviscous acid. The precipitation from the water is monoclinic crystal system colorless acicular or leaf – like crystals. The carboxyl group of this product has the common of common carboxylic acid, can be generated salt, ester, can also be reduced and acylated. The furan ring behaves as an electrophilic substitution reaction, on which the hydrogen can be replaced by alkyl, nitro, sulfonic group, halogen, etc.
2-Furoic Acid is an intermediate in organic synthesis. It can be converted to ester, acyl chloride, anhydride, amide and other derivatives. It can be used in the production of 2-methylfuran, furoamide, furoate (salt), plasticizer, thermosetting resin. It can also be used as food industry preservative, paint additive, fragrance and synthetic furoxime penicillin and ceftiofur medicine.
