2-Methylbutane, CAS 78-78-4, is miscible within ethanol, diethyl ether, insoluble in water. As a solvent, it has lower dissolving power than pentane. It can be applied as the deasphalting solvent. 2-Methylbutane, CAS 78-78-4, can also be used as the solvent for catalyst of the production polyethylene. Besides, it is used as the foaming agent of EPS (Expandable Polystyrene) and polyurethane foam. 
2-Methylbutane, CAS 78-78-4, is highly flammable, which would burn when in contact with fire, high heat and oxidizing agent, so the storage place should be cool, dry and ventilated. It should be separably placed with oxidizing agent and acids. 2-Methylbutane, CAS 78-78-4, has low toxicity, which would cause people narcotic and slightly irritation, there, operators should wear protective clothing and gloves. Avoid rain, sun exposure and high temperature in transit.
