Butylated hydroxytoluene CAS 128-37-0 is an organic chemical composed of 4-methylphenol modified with tert-butyl groups at positions 2 and 6. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) inhibits autoxidation of unsaturated organic compounds. BHT is used in food, cosmetics and industrial fluids to prevent oxidation and free radical formation.
Butylated hydroxytoluene CAS 128-37-0 is a member of the class of phenols that is 4-methylphenol substituted by tert-butyl groups at positions 2 and 6. It has a role as an antioxidant and a food additive. It derives from a phenol.
Butylated hydroxytoluene CAS 128-37-0, also known as dibutylhydroxytoluene, is a lipophilic organic compound, chemically a derivative of phenol, that is useful for its antioxidant properties. BHT is widely used to prevent free radical-mediated oxidation in fluids (e.g. fuels, oils) and other materials, and the regulations overseen by the U.S. F.D.A.—which considers BHT to be "generally recognized as safe"—allow small amounts to be added to foods.
