Handbook of MTBE and Other Gasoline Oxygenates

edited by S. Halim Hamid


  • Includes conclusions drawn from an independent Stanford Research Institute review of the University of California, Davis, report on MTBE

  • Discusses the outlook for future production and consumption of MTBE and other oxygenates worldwide

  • Examines recent shifts in MTBE stance assumed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

This authoritative handbook presents the outlook for future production and consumption of MTBE and other oxygenates worldwide and studies new catalytic systems and modern methods for the synthesis and commercial production of methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) and related ethers.

The scope of this sophisticated guide extends from process chemistry fundamentals and reaction kinetics to environmental remediation technologies and industry responses to conflicting calls for MTBE phase-out and higher-octane products.

Well-illustrated with over 200 figures and tables, Handbook of MTBE and Other Gasoline Oxygenates details bioremediation, air stripping, and oxidation and adsorption processes for MTBE removal.
