2-Furaldehyde (98-01-1, 8030-97-5)
Furfural · Furaldehyde
Furfural is an organic compound produced from a variety of agricultural byproducts, including corncobs, oat, wheat bran, and sawdust. The name furfural comes from the Latin word furfur, meaning bran, referring to its usual source. Aside from ethanol, acetic acid and sugar it is one of the oldest renewable chemicals.
Furan is a heterocyclic organic compound, consisting of a five-membered aromatic ring with four carbon atoms and one oxygen. Chemical compounds containing such rings are also referred to as furans. Furan is a colorless, flammable, highly volatile liquid with a boiling point close to room temperature.
Furosemide (54-31-9, 106391-48-4)
Lasix · Frusemide · Furosemide Monohydrochloride
Furosemide, sold under the brand name Lasix among others, is a medication used to treat fluid build-up due to heart failure, liver scarring, or kidney disease. It may also be used for the treatment of high blood pressure. It can be taken intravenously or by mouth.
FURFURYL ALCOHOL (25212-86-6, 98-00-0)
2-furancarbinol · 2-furylcarbinol
Furfuryl alcohol is an organic compound containing a furan substituted with a hydroxymethyl group. It is a colorless liquid, but aged samples appear amber. It possesses a faint odor of burning and a bitter taste.
hydroxymethylfurfural · 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furfural · 5-HMF cpd
Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), also 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural, is an organic compound formed by the dehydration of certain sugars. It is a white low-melting solid (although commercial samples are often yellow) which is highly soluble in both water and organic solvents. The molecule consists of a furan ring, containing both aldehyde and alcohol functional groups.
6 Furfuryladenine · 6 Furfurylaminopurine · 6-Furfurylaminopurine
Kinetin (/'kaɪnɪtɪn/) is a type of cytokinin, a class of plant hormone that promotes cell division. Kinetin was originally isolated by Miller and Skoog et al. as a compound from autoclaved herring sperm DNA that had cell division-promoting activity.
2-METHYLFURAN (534-22-5, 27137-41-3)
Sylvan · Silvan
2-Methylfuran is a flammable, water-insoluble liquid with a chocolate odor, found naturally in Myrtle and Dutch Lavender used as a FEMA GRAS flavoring substance, with the potential for use in alternative fuels.
2,5-Dimethylfuran is a heterocyclic compound with the formula (CH3)2C4H2O. Although often abbreviated DMF, it should not be confused with dimethylformamide. A derivative of furan, this simple compound is a potential biofuel, being derivable from cellulose.
Wortmannin, a steroid metabolite of the fungi Penicillium funiculosum, Talaromyces wortmannii, is a non-specific, covalent inhibitor of phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3Ks). It has an in vitro inhibitory concentration (IC50) of around 5 nM, making it a more potent inhibitor than LY294002, another commonly used PI3K inhibitor. It displays a similar potency in vitro for the class I, II, and III PI3K members although it can also inhibit other PI3K-related enzymes such as mTOR, DNA-PKcs, some phosphatidylinositol 4-kinases, myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) at high concentrations , Wortmannin has also been reported to inhibit members of the polo-like kinase family with IC50 in the same range as for PI3K.
Furfurylamine is an aromatic amine typically formed by the reductive amination of furfural with ammonia. The pharmaceutical drug furtrethonium, a parasympathomimetic cholinergic, is a derivative of furfurylamine. Furfurylamine also has use in the synthesis of Barmastine.
2-FUROIC ACID (88-14-2, 26447-28-9)
2-furoic acid, sodium salt · 2-furancarboxylic acid · furan-2-carboxylate
2-Furoic acid is a heterocyclic carboxylic acid, consisting of a five-membered aromatic ring and a carboxylic acid group. Its name is derived from the Latin word furfur, meaning bran. The salts and esters of furoic acids are known as furoates.
2-Acetylfuran is a low melting solid or high boiling liquid, depending on temperature. The solid melts at 30 °C and has a density of 1.0975 g/ml at 20 °C, while the normal boiling point of the liquid is 168–169 °C. 2-Acetylfuran is a useful intermediate in the synthesis of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and is used in the production of the generic cephalophosphorin antibiotic cefuroxime.
Furfuryl mercaptan (98-02-2)
Furan-2-ylmethanethiol is an organic compound containing a furan substituted with a sulfanylmethyl group. It is a clear colourless liquid when pure, but it becomes yellow coloured upon prolonged standing. It possesses a strong odour of roasted coffee and a bitter taste.
2-Acetyl-5-methylfuran is an organic compound with the chemical formula C 7H 8O 2.
3-Methylfuran is a organic compound with the formula C5H6O. It is formed from the gas-phase reaction of hydroxyl radical with isoprene. It is toxic by inhalation.
Limonin is a limonoid, and a bitter, white, crystalline substance found in citrus and other plants. It is also known as limonoate D-ring-lactone and limonoic acid di-delta-lactone. Chemically, it is a member of the class of compounds known as furanolactones.
2-Furoyl chloride (527-69-5, 1300-32-9)
2-Furoyl chloride is an acyl chloride of furan. It takes the form of a corrosive liquid, which is more irritating to the eyes than benzoyl chloride. 2-Furoyl chloride is a useful pharmaceutical intermediate and is used in the synthesis of mometasone furoate, an antiinflammatory prodrug used in the treatment of skin disorders, hay fever and asthma.
2-Furonitrile is a colorless derivative of furan possessing a nitrile group.
