2,2,4-Trimethylpentane is used as a solvent in spectrophotometric analysis and in organic synthesis. Due to its high antiknock octane number, it is widely employed as a standard reference fuel for octane ratings. It acts as an entrainer in azeotropic distillation as well as thinner. It is involved as processing aids in the petroleum industry.
