Application

Some of the applications of 2-furoic acid include:
  • Synthesis of a single-molecule magnet, Mn11Gd2 based high-nuclearity heterometallic complex.
  • Synthesis of orally active antidiabetic vanadyl complex, bis(α-furancarboxylato)oxovanadium(IV).
  • As a ligand in the synthesis of luminescent 4f-3d heterometallic one-dimensional coordination polymers.
  • Synthesis of biocompatible multifunctional dextran furoate nanospheres.
