MTBE Catalyst

Methyl tert-butyl ether (also known as MTBE and tert-butyl methyl ether) is an organic compound with molecular formula (CH3)3COCH3. MTBE is a volatile, flammable, and colorless liquid that is sparingly soluble in water. MTBE is a gasoline additive, used as an oxygenate to raise the octane number. MTBE is made by isobutene and methanol in catalyst bed, so active of resin MTBE catalyst is very important for MTBE synthesis.

SINOCATA S-600 MTBE resin catalyst is macroporous styrene type strong acid cation exchange resin, with right pore structure, high surface area and functional group, it demonstrates good low-temperature catalytic activity, high isobuteneconversion, high selectivity, and there is no corrosion with equipment. S-600 resin catalyst are mainly used in making MTBE by methanol and isobutene etherification, making high octane gasoline through etherification by methanol and isomerized butene in light gasoline.

SINOCATA offers Resin catalyst for MTBE, TAME synthesis process and light gasoline etherification, also we offer MTBE desulfurization catalyst.


S-600, a MTBE resin catalyst, the standard catalyst for etherification reactions with high selectivity, excellent stability which against fouling to produce MTBE.
