Easy to separate from water – Simplify your manufacturing process
MTHP is a cyclic ether solvent that has multiple benefits for various organic reactions. Unlike other solvents, MTHP is highly hydrophobic and can be easily separated from water and recycled cost-effectively without adding more complicated steps to your manufacturing process. Emissions and waste water will then be reduced which will save you time and energy. Moreover, with MTHP, no additional extraction solvent will be needed which can lead to higher yields.
Acid, alkali and temperature stability – A solvent for tough condition reactions
MTHP can be used in both acidic and alkaline conditions. Its solvency power is similar to THF and can also be used to dissolve polar compounds. In addition to having an outstanding stability to oxidation, MTHP has a high boiling point which makes it ideal for tough condition reactions. MTHP is also considered as a good alternative to solvents with higher toxicity or suspected to be toxic.
