Comment
Methyl-tert.-butyl ether is a flammable, clear, colourless liquid of low viscosity, which has a characteristic terpene-like odour. It is infinitely miscible with all customary hydrocarbons and organic solvents, but has only limited miscibility with water. In accordance with the properties of ether, DRIVERON S too is essentially inert. Resistant to alkalis and weak acids, high-purity methyl tert.-butyl ether is split by mineral acids to give methanol, iso-Butene and hydrocarbons. Methyl tert.-butyl ether is stable in air and oxygen.
Description
High purity intermediate and solvent which is stable against peroxidation and therefore grants a safe and stable production process of high-value products such as pharmaceuticals.
