How is it manufactured?
Direct amination of isobutylene yields tertiary butylamine. This is a commercially accepted process. On a small scale, TB Amine can be produced by the hydrogenolysis of 2,2-dimethylethylenimine. Another method is mixing isobutylene with sulfuric acid and afterwards with hydrogen cyanide to produce tertiary butylformamide. Its hydrolysis yields Tertiary butylamine.
