Description

General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. FeCl3 is used in many biomass conversion processes because of its unique properties such as nontoxicity, low-cost, abundance, and high selectivity. Here, this product is 0.2 M in 2-methyltetrahydrofuran and thus aligns with "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries", "Use of Renewable Feedstocks", and has been enhanced for catalytic efficiency.
