The chemical industry is one of the most energy and CO2 intensive sectors globally. To reach climate targets, this sector needs to accelerate the transition towards non-fossil, sustainable and more circular and efficient resources. Bio-based industries (BBIs) go in that direction by substituting fossil feedstocks with biological residues and waste to produce greener products.
LEAPChem supplies innovative bio-based platform compounds including 67-47-0, 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural, 1883-75-6, 2,5-furandimethanol, 7389-38-0, 5,5'(oxy-bis(methylene))bis-2-furfural, 4282-32-0, Dimethyl Furan-2,5-dicarboxylate, 3238-40-2, 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid, 2144-40-3, 2,5-Tetrahydrofurandimethanol.
As an important bio base compound, 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural is considered as a critical bridge compound to link biochemistry and petroleum chemistry. It can prepare high value derivatives such as furandicarboxylic acid, furandimethanol, tetrahydrofuran dimethanol fatty acid ester etc. by using oxidation, hydrogenation and esterification methods, which are widely used in polymer materials, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and energy fields.
2,5-furandimethanol can be used as intermediate in medication synthesis, nucleoside derivatives, crown ether, polyester, and polyurethane. It can also be used as solvents, wetting agent, binder, surfactant, and artificial receptor, etc.
5,5'(oxy-bis(methylene))bis-2-furfural is raw material for polyamide and polyimide bio base polymeric material and can be used in the synthesis of heterocyclic ligands and hepatitis antiviral precursors.
4282-32-0 Dimethyl Furan-2,5-dicarboxylate
Dimethyl Furan-2,5-dicarboxylate is mainly used in the chemical synthesis process and lab research process as intermediates.
3238-40-2 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid
2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid is considered as a recyclable replacement of petroleum based terephthalic acid and also as replacement of isophthalic acid, succinic acid, bisphenol A, and adipic acid preparation.
2,5-Tetrahydrofurandimethanol has more stability than unsaturated furans and can be used as solvents, stabilization, wetting agent, dispersant, decolorizer, etc. It can also be used in preparation of polyamide plastic, plasticizer, insecticide, etc.
