Safety Information
5-Nitrofurfural Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionNitrofuran carboxaldehyde (NFC) is used to synthesize many drugs and chemicals such as nifuraldezone, puraguanidine, nifuratrone, furmethoxadone, etc. Furfural the main structure of NFC was determined many years ago to be a byproduct of formic acid synthesis. Furfural is produced from agricultural byproducts such as sugarcane bagasse and corncobs.
  • Chemical PropertiesYellow to brown crystalline low melting solid
  • UsesNFC and its derivatives have antibacterial and antifungal activities. They destroy both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella schotmuelleri, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Escherichia coli, and Streptococcus pyogenes. They may be used as antibacterial agents in a prophylactic manner, for example, in cleaning and disinfecting products. This compound also has antitrichomonal and antifungal activities.
  • Toxicity evaluationNFC inhibits the uptake of oxygen and disrupts cellular respiration within mitochondria. NFC and other nitrofurans are relatively potent inhibitors of monoamine oxidase enzyme in mammalian and avian species.
