Application

2-Methyl-2-butene can be used:
  • For the cross metathesis reaction to form compounds with prenyl-type double bonds: methyl 10-methylundec-9-enoate, 2-methylundec-2-ene and 8-prenylcoumarins.
  • As a model of C5-branched alkene fuel to study the high-temperature kinetics of branched alkenes in a combustion environment.
  • As an additive along with pyridine for partial hydrogenation of poly-ynes to form ω-hydroxy polyunsaturated fatty acids.
