  Anecdotal reports suggest that high environmental or occupational exposures to the fuel oxygenate methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) may result in breath concentrations that are sufficiently elevated to cause a false positive on commercial breath-alcohol analyzers. We evaluated this possibility in vitro by establishing a response curve for simulated breath containing MTBE in ethanol. Methyl tert-butyl ether Hazard Summary Methyl tert-butyl ether is used as a gasoline additive. Exposure may occur by breathing air contaminated with auto exhaust or gasoline fumes while refueling autos. Respiratory irritation, dizziness, and disorientation have been reported by some motorists and occupationally exposed g: evaluation. Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is a flammable liquid with a distinctive, disagreeable odor. It is made from blending chemicals such as isobutylene and methanol, and has been used since the s as an additive for unleaded gasolines to achieve more efficient burning.

  Abstract. Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is the oxygenated gasoline additive most widely used in the U.S. to reduce the CO emission from motor developed a method using a high-temperature purge-and-trap procedure coupled with capillary gas chromatography-mass selective detection to determine MTBE and its metabolite, tert-butyl alcohol (TBA), in human by: A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, motile, non-pigmented, facultative aerobe that grew optimally at pH and 30 °C (strain PM1 T) was isolated for its ability to completely degrade the gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl is of the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that this bacterium was a member of the class Betaproteobacteria in the Sphaerotilus–Leptothrix by: Methyl tert -butyl ether was tested for carcinogenicity in a non-standard protocol in rats by gavage. The incidences of Leydig-cell tumours of the testis in males and of lymphomas and leukaemias combined in females were increased. Methyl tert -butyl ether was tested by inhalation in one experiment in mice and in one experiment in rats. Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), also known as tert-butyl methyl ether, is an organic compound with a structural formula (CH 3) 3 COCH is a volatile, flammable, and colorless liquid that is sparingly soluble in water. It has a minty smell, vaguely reminiscent of diethyl ether, leading to unpleasant taste and odor in is a blending component of gasoline, used as an oxygenate to Chemical formula: C₅H₁₂O.
