5-HMF Molek├╝l Element

Molecule

5-Hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF, CAS 67-47-0) derived from sugars is the link between biomass and furan-based chemicals. With its various functional groups and associated reaction sites, this small molecule opens the door to a wide range of chemical modifications, which makes 5-HMF a versatile renewable building block.

Applications

5-HMF serves as building block for many applications in several industries like packaging, construction, textile, cosmetics, food and health as:

  • Formaldehyde replacement in resins, adhesives and coatings
  • Precursor of FDCA (Furan-2,5-dicarboxylic acid) and its polymer PEF (Polyethylene furanoate)
  • Active natural ingredient in nutraceuticals and dietary foods
