2,6-DIMETHYLTHIOPHENOL Usage And Synthesis
  • Description

    2,6-Dimethylbenzenethiol, also known as 2,6-dimethyl thiophenol or 2,6-xylenethiol, the molecular formula is C8H10S, which belongs to the class of organic compounds known as thiophenols. Thiophenols are compounds containing a thiophenol ring, which a phenol derivative obtained by replacing the oxygen atom from the hydroxyl group (attached to the benzene) by a sulfur atom. 2,6-Dimethylbenzenethiol is a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). 2,6-Dimethylbenzenethiol is a meaty, metallic, and phenolic tasting compound.
    2,6-Dimethylbenzenethiol is found in animal foods. It is present in boiled beef. It is a flavouring ingredient. 2,6-Dimethylbenzenethiol was used in the synthesis of (2,6-Me2C6H3S)2Pb by reacting with Pb(OAc)2.
