2-Furaldehyde is used in the manufacture of furfural-phenol plastics such as Durite; in solvent refining of petroleum oils and in the preparation of pyromucic acid. It is used as a solvent for nitrated cotton, cellulose acetate and gums; for accelerating vulcanization; in the synthesis of furan derivatives.
