Methyl disulfide(CAS NO. 624-92-0) is an organic chemical compound with the molecular formula CH3SSCH3 which is the simplest disulfide. It is a flammable liquid with an unpleasant, garlic-like odor.
Methyl disulfide is used as a food additive in onion, garlic, cheese, meats, soups, savory flavors, and fruit flavors. Industrially, it is used in oil refineries as a sulfiding agent. It is also an effective soil fumigant in agricultural applications, registered in many states in the U.S. as well as globally.
For Food Use
Methyl disulfide(CAS NO. 624-92-0) is used to alpha substitute 2-methylfuran-acrolein to produce a food stuff used in concentrations from 0.02 ppm up to 50 ppm.
For Industry Use
Methyl disulfide is a stable pale yellow liquid which works as an effective product in the sulfiding process because of its high sulphur content. It is soon becoming the sulfiding industry’s sulfiding reagent of choice because it offers more sulphur per pound of reagent when compared to its nearest competitor Dimethyl Sulfide.
Methyl disulfide(CAS NO. 624-92-0) also works as an effective product for operators in the petrochemicals industry who must protect their steam-cracking coils against the formation of coke and carbon monoxide.
Methyl disulfide is used in the preparation of Para (methylthio) phenol which is the title compound used in the production of various pesticides by reacting the methyl disulfide and chlorine with borontriflouride phenolate. Thiophene and Methyl disulfide are blended with combustible hydrocarbon fuel gas to impart a gassy odor to the fuel gas. Methyl disulfide is used in each of these patents as a sulfiding reagent to control catalyst activity.
