Going green with 2-methyltetrahydrofuran (2-MeTHF)

Over the past 20 years, research in healthier and environmentally friendly solvents has seen huge advances, and we at Rieke Metals are excited to get involved.  We now offer over 30 Grignard and organozinc reagents in 2-methyltetrahydrofuran or 2-MeTHF.  Derived from renewable resources, 2-MeTHF is an aprotic ether solvent.  Its properties place it between tetrahydrofuran (THF) and diethyl ether in regard to polarity and Lewis base strength.  

Molarity ranges from 0.5M to 1.0M  and every compound listed is in stock.  We continue to research all of our current organometallic offerings and will continue to offer more in 2-MeTHF.  Please contact us for your specific organozinc or Grignard reagents in 2-MeTHF.
