        Methyl tert-butyl ether (also known as MTBE, tert-butyl methyl ether, tertiary butyl methyl ether and tBME) is an organic compound with structural formula (CH3)3COCH3. MTBE . Ethyl tert-butyl ether (ETBE) is commonly used as an oxygenate gasoline additive in the production of gasoline from crude offers equal or greater air quality benefits than ethanol, while being technically and logistically less ethanol, ETBE does not induce evaporation of gasoline, which is one of the causes of smog, and does not absorb moisture from the iations: ETBE.

        Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is a flammable liquid that has been used as an additive for unleaded gasoline since the increases octane and oxygen levels in gasoline and reduces pollution emissions. Because of concerns for groundwater contamination and water quality, MTBE is now banned or limited in several states. This monograph for Methyl tert-Butyl Ether provides, in addition to common physical constants, a general description including typical appearance, applications, change in state (approximate), aqueous solubility, and density.

The chemical formula for methyl tert-butyl ether is C5H12O, and its molecular weight is g/mol. (1,4,5) Methyl tert-butyl ether occurs as a colorless liquid, with a vapor pressure of mm Hg at 25 °C.

Distribution of Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE) and Selected Water-Quality Constituents in the Surficial Aquifer at the Dover National Test Site, Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, By Marie Stewart, William R.

Guertal, Jeffrey R. Barbaro, and Timothy J. McHale. This report is available as a pdf. ABSTRACT. The biotransformation of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), ethyl tert-butyl ether, and tert-amyl methyl ether (TAME) was studied in humans and in rats after inhalation of 4 and 40 ppm of MTBE, ETBE, and TAME, respectively, for 4 hours, and the biotransformation of MTBE and TAME was studied after ingestion exposure in humans to 5 and 15 mg in water.

A joint study by the Dover National Test Site, Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, and the U.S. Geological Survey was conducted from June 27 through Jto determine the spatial distribution of the gasoline oxygenate additive methyl tert-butyl ether and selected water-quality constituents in the surficial aquifer underlying the Dover National Test Site.

Methyl tert-butyl ether, also known as methyl tertiary butyl ether and MTBE, is an organic compound. MTBE is a volatile, flammable, and colourless liquid that is immiscible with water. It has a minty odour vaguely reminiscent of diethyl ether, leading to unpleasant taste and odour in water.

The gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) was the most frequently detected VOC in drinking water after the THMs. MTBE was detected in percent of the 1, randomly selected CWSs that analyzed samples for MTBE at any reporting level, and it was detected in percent of the 1, CWSs that provided MTBE data at the ?g/L.

The concentrations and distribution of the fuel additive methyl tert-butyl ether has been investigated throughout the estuarine study area.

Concentrations from a few ng/l to a maximum of ng/l are recorded which, from a toxicological viewpoint are unlikely to be a cause for by: Sigma-Aldrich offers a number of tert -Butyl methyl ether products.

The release of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) to the environment, mainly from damaged gasoline underground storage tanks or distribution systems spills, has provoked extended groundwater pollution.

tert-Butyl methyl ether Volume 17 1 Toxic Effects and Mode of Action tert-Butyl methyl ether is absorbed readily after inhalation exposure and ingestion, and is distributed rapidly in the organism.

Absorbed tert-butyl methyl ether and the resulting metabolites are rapidly exhaled, and to a lesser extent also eliminated via the kidneys.

Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), also known as tert-butyl methyl ether, is an organic compound with a structural formula (CH 3) 3 COCH is a volatile, flammable, and colorless liquid that is sparingly soluble in water.

It has a minty smell, vaguely reminiscent of diethyl ether, leading to unpleasant taste and odor in is a blending component of gasoline, used as an oxygenate to Chemical formula: C₅H₁₂O.

PERSPECTIVES ON SPECIFIC SUBSTANCES: METHYL tert-BUTYL ETHER FIGURE Annual spill frequency of gasoline with MTBE (7–15%) – • It lowers the gasoline 50% ignition point, thus enhancing cold engine warmup perform- ance.

• Its relatively low taste and odor thresholds provide ample warning of its presence. • It has very low toxicity and does not bioaccumulate.

Frequency of detection of methyl tert-butyl ether at or above microgram per liter in drinking waterCited by: The initial oxidation of MTBE and ETBE resulted in the production of nearly stoichiometric amounts of tert-butyl alcohol (TBA), while the initial oxidation of TAME resulted in the production of tert-amyl alcohol.

The methoxy methyl group of MTBE was oxidized to formaldehyde and ultimately to by: An ether having methyl and tert>-butyl as the two alkyl components. ChEBI CHEBI An ether having methyl and tert-butyl as the two alkyl components.

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, motile, non-pigmented, facultative aerobe that grew optimally at pH and 30 °C (strain PM1T) was isolated for its ability to completely degrade the gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl ether. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that this bacterium was a member of the class Betaproteobacteria in the Sphaerotilus–Leptothrix by: The surface tension of dimethoxymethane was measured at temperatures from ( to ) K with a differential capillary rise method (DCRM), together with the surface tension of methyl tert-butyl ether measured at temperatures from ( to ) K.

The uncertainty of temperature is less than ± 10 mK (ITS). The uncertainty of surface tension measurements was estimated to be within ± mNmCited by: Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is used as a high-octane additive component that helps gasoline burn cleaner and reduces automobile emissions. Unlike ethanol, MTBE does not increases evaporative emissions from gasoline and is fully fungible in existing gasoline distribution systems.
