General description

tert-Amyl methyl ether is an fuel ether oxygenate and has been quantitated in water by membrane extraction ion mobility spectrometry. tert-Amyl methyl ether is also referred to as 2-methoxy-2-methyl butane. Kinetics of ion exchange resin (Amberlyst 18) catalyzed tert-amyl methyl ether reactions have been investigated.
