We report electron impact total cross sections for tetrahydrofuran (C4H8O) from ionization threshold to 5 keV. We have employed Spherical Complex Optical Potential (SCOP) to calculate total cross sections QT, total inelastic cross sections Qinel and total elastic cross sections Qel and have used Complex Scattering Potential – ionization contribution (CSP-ic) formalisms to compute total ionization cross sections Qion and summed total excitation cross sections ∑ Qexc. We have compared our cross sections with available experimental as well as theoretical results and have found good agreement wherever available. This is the maiden attempt to report the total excitation cross sections for this target.
