MTBE is known to ungergo photochemical transformations in the atmosphere (gas phase) resulting in the formation of tert-butyl formate (TBF).
How will the folloing physical/chemical properties of pure MTBE compare with those of pure TBF? Fill in the black for each property (<,>,~) and concisely justify your answer.
1. boiling point MTBE______TBF
2. Vapor pressure MTBE______TBF
3. Aqueous solubility MTBE______TBF
4. Kioc MTBE______TBF
5. susceptibility to removl from the atmosphere by rain MTBE______TBF
