Methyl Tertiary-Butyl Ether - Environmental Health Criteria 206

United Nations Environment Programme ; World Health Organization ; International Labour Organisation ; Inter-Organization Programme for the Sound Management of Chemicals (IOMC) (1998)

Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) is one of several ethers that may be used as fuel additives and is currently by far the dominant one. Ethyl tertiary-butyl ether (ETBE), tertiary-amyl methyl ether (TAME), tertiary-amyl ethyl ether (TAEE) and diisopropyl ether (DIPE), among others, may supplement, or serve as alternatives to MTBE for oxygenation or octane enhancement purposes and may be found, therefore, in association with MTBE.
