2-Methyl-1-butene is used as a solvent in organic synthesis. It is also used in the preparation of pinacolone, flavor enhancer, spice, crop protectants and tertiary amyl phenol. Further, it serves as a photosensitive material and concrete dispersant. In addition to this, it is used as a fuel and fuel additive.
