Applications
Isobutanol is a reagent used in organic reactions. It is employed in the synthesis of new fluorinating reagents. It is also used in the lipase-catalyzed production of biodiesel as an energy source. It acts as a catalyst for the liquid-phase esterification of acetic acid by ion-exchange resins. Dehydration of fermented isobutanol is useful in the production of renewable chemicals and fuels.

Solubility
Miscible with alcohol and diethyl ether. Partially miscible with water.

Notes
Avoid all sources of ignition. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
