2-Mercaptobenzothiazole Chemical Properties,Uses,Production
Mercaptobenzothiazole is a rubber chemical, an accelerant of vulcanization. It is contained in the "mercapto mix". The most frequent occupational categories are metal industry, homemakers, health services and laboratories, building industries, and shoemakers. It is also used as a corrosion inhibitor in cutting fluids or in releasing fluids used in the pottery industry.
pale yellow monoclinic needle-like or flaky crystals with a disagreeable odor. Insoluble in water and gasoline, soluble in ethanol, ethyl ether, acetone, ethyl acetate, benzene, chloroform and dilute alkali solution.
2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) is an industrial chemical that is used principally in the manufacture of rubber.Vulcanization accelerator for type of rubber usually used in the production of household rubber gloves rather than medical rubber gloves; corrosion inhibitor in metal-working fluids, detergents, antifreeze, and photographic emulsions. In addition, 2-MBT is formed as a reaction product from some vulcanisation accelerators in elastomer production.
2-mercaptobenzothiazole is an accelerator, retarder, and peptizer for natural and other rubber products, but is also used as a corrosion inhibitor in soluble cutting oils and antifreeze mixtures; in greases, adhesives, photographic-film emulsions; detergents; veterinary products, such as tick and flea powders and sprays.It is added to polyether polymers as a stabilizer to resist damage by air and ozone, and is a component approved in the USA in some skin medications for dogs (HSDB, 2015).
2-Mercaptobenzothiazole is also used as an intermediate in the production of pesticides such as 2-(thiocyanomethylthio)benzothiazole (Azam & Suresh, 2012), and sodium and zinc salts of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole are approved for use as pesticides by the EPA (1994).
2-Mercaptobenzothiazole is produced by reacting aniline, carbon disulfide, and sulfur at high temperature and pressure; the product is then purified by dissolution in a base to remove the dissolved organics. Re-precipitation is achieved by the addition of acid (Kirk-Othmer, 1982; NTP, 1988).
Refined 2-mercaptobenzothiazole was produced by recrystallization from 2-mercaptobenzothiazole with industrial grade and oxidized to 2,2'-dithiobis(benzothiazole), using oxygen as an oxidant, nitric oxide as a oxygen carrier and alcohols as solvents, in a circulating fluidized reactor under one-step oxidation. 2,2'-Dithiobis(benzothiazole) was thus obtained with high purity up to 99 %, melting point at 183 oC, high yield over 98 %, through the optimization of reaction parameters as reaction time, temperature, reactants ratio, with less waste generation and emission during the production process. Alcohol solvents can be reused after purification.
ChEBI: 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole is a 1,3-Benzothiazole substituted at the 2-position with a sulfanyl group. It is used as a vulcanisation accelerator in the crosslinking of rubber.

Pale yellow to tan crystalline powder with a disagreeable odor.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
2-Mercaptobenzothiazole is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Also incompatible with acids and acid fumes.
Thiazoles cause allergic skin reactions of type IV [delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH)].
2-mercaptobenzothiazole is a Standardized Chemical Allergen. The physiologic effect of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole is by means of Increased Histamine Release, and Cell-mediated Immunity.
2-Mercaptobenzothiazole is combustible.
Suspected carcinogen withexperimental carcinogenic and tumorigenic data. Poisonby ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. Experimentalteratogenic and reproductive effects. Mutation datareported. Incompatible with oxidizers. When heated todecomposition
2-Mercaptobenzothiazole has a sensitizing effect, and with chronic exposure (e.g., through the use of rubber gloves) it may induce skin reactions. 2-Mercapto-1-methylimidazole displays teratogenic effects in humans, and it is suspected of being a carcinogen. 6-Mercaptopurine derivatives influence cell division, and have been employed as cytostatic agents. They have been found to be teratogenic in animal studies. Methylthio-substituted triazines, which are used as herbicides, are only slightly toxic. The corresponding LD50 or LC50 values derived from animal studies are above the level of 1000 mg/ kg. Similar values have been established for a methylthiotriazinone that is the active ingredient in the herbicide Sencor.
MBT was not mutagenic in Ames bacterial assays, but it induced chromosomal damage in mammalian cells in culture. Reproductive effects were not observed in two-generation studies of rats treated with up to 15,000 ppm MBT in the diet.
Crystallise it repeatedly from 95% EtOH, or purify it by incomplete precipitation by dilute H2SO4 from a basic solution, followed by several crystallisations from acetone/H2O or *benzene. It complexes with Ag, Au, Bi, Cd, Hg, Ir, Pt, and Tl. [Beilstein 27 II 233, 27 III/IV 2709.]
