Description

General description

tert-butanol can find applications as an ideal reaction medium or solvent for the lipase-catalyzed biodiesel production.

Application

tert-butanol can also find applications in the alkylation of p-cresol to obtain 2-tert-butyl-p-cresol and 2,6-di-tert-butyl-p-cresol, also known as butylated hydroxy toluene, used in the manufacturing of polymerization inhibitors and phenolic resins as antioxidants.
