Ethyl Tert-Butyl Ether (a.k.a. ETBE, 2-Ethoxy-2-Methyl-Propane) is an aliphatic ether having ethyl and tert-butyl as the two alkyl components, manufactured by etherification of isobutylene with ethanol, in the presence of an acidic ion-exchange resin catalyst. Commonly used as an oxygenate gasoline additive, ETBE has a lower Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) and better octane properties than MTBE. As a pure component, ETBE appears as clear light yellow liquid.
