Its derivatives are used as inhibitors of biofilm formation for several bacterial species, as well as possess quorum-sensing inhibitory activities. 2-methylfuran and 2,5-dimethylfuran are used as lignocellulosic biofuels. Its resin is used to stop sand production in underground gas storage wells. It undergo Diels-Alder reaction with arynes to give derivatives of dihydronaphthalenes which are useful intermediates in synthesis of other polycyclic aromatic compounds.
