    R. Paul Philp, in Introduction to Environmental Forensics (Third Edition), Use of GCIRMS for MTBE. Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) has been phased out of gasoline in the United States, but it remains a major environmental problem and one that is ideally suited to study using carbon and hydrogen isotope compositions.   Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is rapidly becoming a major environmental problem but one that may be ideally suited to study using carbon and hydrogen isotope compositions. The recent controversy over addition of MTBE to gasoline to boost oxygen content and decrease carbon monoxide emissions to the atmosphere led to a proposed phase-out of this compound by , although this .

      Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE). CAS No. General Information. Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) was added to reformulated gasoline to boost octane and to reduce carbon monoxide exhaust emissions in high smog areas of the United States in e of concerns for groundwater contamination and water quality, MTBE was banned or its usage was limited in several .   Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is a flammable liquid with a distinctive, disagreeable odor. It is made from blending chemicals such as isobutylene and methanol, and has been used since the s as an additive for unleaded gasolines to achieve more efficient burning. MTBE is also used to dissolve gallstones. Patients treated in this way have MTBE delivered directly to their gall bladders.

    Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is a volatile organic compound (VOC) often added to gasoline to reduce air pollution. MTBE and other components, commonly known as “oxygenates,” are added to gasoline to increase the octane number and reduce carbon monoxide emissions. Information regarding the chemicalFile Size: KB.
