Tetrahydrofuran is used as a solvent in Grignard reagent formation processes, pharmaceutical steroids and in the preparation of organometallic reagents. It is used for HPLC, spectrophotometry and environmental testing. It is used as a resin solvent in flexographic inks for plastics coating deposition for audio and video tapes. It is used in PVC and CPVC pipe cements, polyurethane coatings and in PVC film castings.
