The heat capacity of 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol over the interval (5 to 370) K was measured in an adiabatic calorimeter. The standard entropy and heat capacity of liquid phase at reference temperature 298.15 K were found to be Som = (232.6 ± 1.0) J·K-1·mol-1. The triple-point temperature Tfus = (245.03 +- 0.03) K and the corresponding enthalpy of fusion DcrlHom = (5.199 ± 0.012) kJ·mol-1 were also determined. The enthalpy of vaporization was determined with a Calvet-type calorimeter to be DlgHom = (46.9 ± 1.6) kJ·mol-1. The vapor pressure over temperature interval (280 to 328) K was measured with static technique. The standard entropy of vaporization at 298.15 K was found to be DlgSom = (132.6 ± 0.2) J·K-1·mol-1. The standard enthalpy of combustion for liquid 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol DcHom(l, 298.15 K) = -(3146.4 ± 2.7) kJ·mol-1 was measured with two static-bomb isoperibol combustion calorimeters. From the experimental data, the standard enthalpies of formation for liquid and gaseous 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol were found to be DfHom(l, 298.15 K) = -(250.3 ± 2.8) kJ·mol-1 and DfHom (g, 298.15 K) = -(202.1 ± 2.8) kJ·mol-1, respectively. The latter value was confirmed by high-level quantum chemical calculations. Molecular association in the gas phase and its effect on thermodynamic properties of the compound is discussed.
