Methylisobutylcarbinol

Product
chemical structure of MIBC

MIBC (Methylisobutylcarbinol) is a colorless liquid C6 branched alcohol. It is used in the synthesis of lub oil addtives (ZDDP) for anti-wear and anti-corrosion.

 

It is also commonly used as a large range flotation frother in copper (polymetallic) and coal minings.

 

MIBC can also be used in coatings or fine chemistry
