General description

Furfural is a furan derivative. Production of furfural by dehydration of fructose, glucose and xylose using a biphasic reactor system has been reported. Furfural, a Maillard reaction product, is reported to inhibit the growth and alcohol production bySaccharomyces cerevisiae.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one of the four categories of Greener Alternatives . This product is a Biobased products, showing key improvements in Green Chemistry Principles “Less Hazardous Chemical Syntheses” and “Use of Renewable Feedstock”.
