  • Isobutylene (or 2-methylpropene) is a hydrocarbon of significant industrial importance.
  • It is a four-carbon branched alkene (olefin), one of the four isomers of butylene.
  • Isobutylene can be isolated from refinery streams by reaction with sulfuric acid, but the most common industrial method for its production is by catalytic dehydrogenation of isobutane.
  • Alkylating isobutylene mixed with normal olefins will result in the production of more heavy alkylate due to isobutylene - n-olefin reactions.
  • There are two principle sources of highly purity isobutylene. One is the decomposition of MTBE to isobutylene and methanol, and the other is the dehydrogeneration of isobutane.
  • Distillation is the another possibility for the production of isobutylene. For this FCC butenes should be partially hydrogeneted to both eliminate most of the butadiene and also isomerize most 1-butene to 2-butene.
  • Isobutylene is the most explored monomer which is polymerized by controlled/living cationic polymerization.
  • At standard temperature and pressure it is a colorless flammable gas.
  • Isobutylene is used as an intermediate in the production of a variety of products. It is reacted with methanol and ethanol manufacture of gasoline oxygenates methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and ethyl tert-butyl ether (ETBE), respectively.
  • Isobutylene is also used in the production of methacrolein. Polymerization of isobutylene produces butyl rubber (polyisobutylene).
  • Antioxidants such as butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are produced by Friedel-Crafts alkylation of phenols using isobutylene.
