Germaine this side…Mercaptans, also known as thiols, are a type of sulfur-based component found in many hydrocarbon streams, primarily as an impurity. odor control chemicals are related to alcohols, but the atom has been replaced by a sulphur atom. This modification confers distinct chemical and physical properties on mercaptan molecules. Organoleptic properties are also affected mercaptans, for example, have a particularly foul odour. Because of the stabilising effect of the sulphur atom, the transition from a more electronegative atom to gives mercaptans a more acidic character than their alcohol counterparts.
