Methyl tert-butyl ether, also known as methyl tertiary butyl ether and MTBE. In addition, MTBE is a volatile, flammable, and colorless liquid that is sparingly soluble in water.

1-(2-propoxy,2-methyl)-butane is the systematic name of the given compound.

These are common refinery chemicals. So, no, the MTBE Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether enriched scales are removed from the storage tanks and can come under phosphoric material category.

The chemical formula of the butyl propyl ether (1-propoxy butane) is:C7H16O,or CH3CH2CH2CH2OCH2CH2CH3 first part is the butane chain, then the functional group O, then the remaining propane chain.

Tert-butyl methyl ether more polar than petroleum ethere cause petroleum ether isn't an ether- it's composed of hydrocarbons, which are nonpolar. The real ether that is in tBME includes oxygen, which is electronegative and creates more polarity in the molecule.

It is Ethyl butyl ether or 1-ethoxy butane

Yes, its formula is C5H12O. It contains carbon and is thus organic.

Chemically, butyl ether is an ether. It may also be called a butoxy compound.

IUPAC nomenclature: Isobutyl methyl ether : 1-methoxy-2-methylpropane Methyl tert-butyl ether : 2-methoxy-2-methylpropane Resorcinol : 1,3-dihydroxybenzene Catechol : 1,2-dihydroxybenzene Isobutyl alcohol : 2-methyl-1-propanol or 2-methylpropan-1-ol Even more at prepared by aditya vardhan, the world famous chemist.

It's used as the liquid portion of some high-performance paints.

Melting point of methyl ether is -138.5oC

That would be "butyl glycol ether." They put it in a lot of household cleaners. It's a form of ethylene glycol. It has "low toxicity," which the FDA allows to be used in extremely small amounts as a food additive.

The IUPAC name of ethyl methyl ether is methoxyethane and has the formula C3H8O.

Dimethyl ether is CH3-O-CH3

1-Methoxypropane An ether is just an oxygen atom with two R groups branching off of it. Methyl propyl ether has a methyl group and propyl group branching off, so it is named methoxypropane.

it is classified as ether. and it is named as ethyl methyl ether.

I would say no they are not isomers because methylpropyl ether has four carbons, and 3-methyl-2-butanol has five carbons.

R-O-R where , R = alkyl group For Example, CH3 - O -CH3 is di-methyl ether, C2H5 - O -C2H5 is di-ethyl ether, C2H5 - O - CH3 is ethyl methyl ether......etc.

that is methyl propyl ether. aka methoxy propane. not methoxy propyl ether. methyl propyl ether has 1 oxygen. methoxy propyl ether has 2 oxygens.
