Handbook of MTBE and Other Gasoline Oxygenates (Chemical by Halim Hamid, Mohammed Ashraf Ali

By Halim Hamid, Mohammed Ashraf Ali

This guide offers the outlook for destiny creation and intake of MTBE and different oxygenates around the world and reviews new catalytic platforms and smooth equipment for the synthesis and advertisement construction of methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) and comparable ethers. The scope of this subtle consultant extends from method chemistry basics and response kinetics to environmental remediation applied sciences and responses to conflicting demands MTBE phase-out and higher-octane items. Well-illustrated with over two hundred figures and tables, this authoritative guide information bioremediation, air stripping, and oxidation and adsorption methods for MTBE removal.

Copyright © 2004 Marcel Dekker, Inc. 3 Blending Properties of MTBE and Other Oxygenates in Gasoline Mohammad Ashraf Ali and Halim Hamid Research Institute, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia I. INTRODUCTION Oxygenated ethers and alcohols are blended with gasoline to increase octane number and to fight air pollution problems. These oxygenates have replaced alkyl lead and other metal-containing compounds in gasoline because the use of compounds such as tetraethyl lead (TEL), tetramethyl lead (TML), and methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT) in gasoline has created air pollution problems.

In Europe, there continues to be support for MTBE’s ability to reduce air pollution and a general belief that the real problem in the United States is leaking gasoline tanks. With the new European specifications, it is probable that the use of MTBE/oxygenates will increase as total aromatics and benzene levels are reduced; Copyright © 2004 Marcel Dekker, Inc. however, with the right equipment in place, MTBE is unlikely to become a concern in the future.  Demand for MTBE is expected to be marginally firmer in the near future, as more Asian countries such as Indonesia and India are working to totally phase out lead from their gasoline pool.
