MTBE (a.k.a. Methyl tert-Butyl Ether) is volatile, flammable and colorless liquid with minty smell. This ether is a major compound in the octane enhancer industry, its main application area. The remaining MTBE is used as a solvent and in the production of other chemical compounds. It is produced by the reaction of methanol and isobutylene (2-methyl-1-propene) in the liquid state.
