Properties and stability

1. Avoid contact with strong oxidants.

2. Soluble in benzene, acetone, dichloroethane, carbon disulfide, toluene, chloroform, slightly soluble in ethanol and ether, insoluble in gasoline and water. Odorless, tasteless and non-toxic. Storage stable.

Storage method

Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. Protect from direct sunlight. The packaging is sealed. should be kept away from oxidizer, do not store together. Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire equipment. Suitable materials should be available in the storage area to contain spills.

Synthesis method

Add tetramethylthiuram disulfide (accelerator TMTD) and sodium cyanide to the reaction kettle, then add water and ethanol, and raise the temperature to 40-50°C with stirring to carry out desulfurization reaction. After the reaction is complete, cool down and let stand for stratification. After the oil layer is washed with water, separated and dehydrated, the finished product is obtained.


Used as vulcanization accelerator for natural rubber and synthetic rubber.
