Tert-butyl alcohol (TBA) is used as a solvent; as a denaturant for ethanol and several other alcohols; in the manufacture of flotation agents, fruit essences, and perfumes; as an octane booster in gasoline; as a dehydrating agent; and as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of methyl methacrylate. TBA's production for industrial uses may result in its direct release to the environment through various waste streams. TBA is also a likely degradation product of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE). Probable routes of human exposure to TBA include inhalation, ingestion, and skin or eye contact.
