GO:0018968 tetrahydrofuran metabolic process

Term Information

ID GO:0018968
Name tetrahydrofuran metabolic process
Ontology Biological Process
Definition The chemical reactions and pathways involving tetrahydrofuran, a cyclic 4 carbon ether. It is one of the most polar ethers and is a widely used solvent for polar reagents. Since THF is very soluble in water and has a relatively low boiling point, significant amounts are often released into the environment, causing contamination problems.
