A selected bibliography of scientific literature on the fuel oxygenate methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is presented in this report. The primary focus of the bibliography is on the water-quality aspects of MTBE. The bibliography includes 268 references. Each reference has been assigned a keyword(s) on the basis of its subject matter. Bibliographic entries are listed alphabetically by principal author, either individual(s) or organization(s), and by date (most recent entry last for multiple entries by the same principal author). Entries are numbered consecutively and include their assigned keyword(s). The keyword index is grouped by six major topical categories. Within each major category, associated keywords are listed alphabetically. The keyword index identifies those references (via their reference number) associated with each keyword. The bibliography also is available in searchable form on the Internet using Internet browser software. Instructions are given within the report on how to access the Internet version of the bibliography, which will be updated periodically as long as funding permits.
