2ME; 2-Mercaptoethanol; β-Mercaptoethanol, 2-Hydroxyethanethiol

Short Description:

2-Mercaptoethanol, also known as β-mercaptoethanol, 2-hydroxyethanethiol, and 2-ME, is an organic compound with the molecular formula C2H6OS. It appears as a colorless, transparent liquid and has a strong pungent odor. Easily soluble in water and miscible with ethanol, ether and benzene in any proportion. 2-Mercaptoethanol is an important type of fine chemical raw material, which can be widely used in pesticides, medicines, dyes, chemicals, rubber, plastics, textiles and other fields.

2-Mercaptoethanol has a wide range of applications. It can be used as an organic synthesis intermediate in pesticide production scenarios such as insecticides and herbicides; it can be used as an auxiliary and photosensitive material in rubber, textile, plastic, and coating production scenarios; it can be used as a telomer Agents, heat stabilizers, and cross-linking agents are used in the synthesis of polymer materials such as polyvinyl chloride, polyacrylonitrile, polystyrene, and polyacrylate; can be used as antioxidants in biological experiments; can be used as raw materials with aldehydes or Ketone reaction is used in the production scenario of oxygen-sulfur heterocyclic compounds
