Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is a fuel additive used to increase the octane rating of gasoline and reduce air pollution. It is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is produced by the reaction of methanol and isobutylene. MTBE is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet odor. It is miscible with water and is soluble in most organic solvents. MTBE is used in gasoline to increase octane ratings and reduce emissions of carbon monoxide and other pollutants. It is also used as a solvent in the production of pharmaceuticals, paints, and coatings. The MTBE market is driven by the increasing demand for gasoline and the need to reduce air pollution. The increasing demand for gasoline in developing countries is expected to drive the market for MTBE. The stringent regulations on air pollution are also expected to drive the market for MTBE. Some of the major companies in the MTBE market are ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Chevron, and Total. Show Less Read more
