What does the T' represent in t-butyl?

Answer:

Tertiary

Tertiary ( TUR-shə-ree, TUR-shee-err-ee) is a widely used, but obsolete term for the geologic period from 66 million to 2. 6 million years ago. The period began with the demise of the non-avian dinosaurs in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, at the start of the Cenozoic Era, and extended to the beginning of the Quaternary glaciation at the end of the Pliocene Epoch. The time span covered by the Tertiary has no exact equivalent in the current geologic time system, but it is essentially the merged Paleogene and Neogene periods, which are informally called the Lower Tertiary and the Upper Tertiary, respectively.
