Mercaptans, sulfides, and their derivatives

  • N. N. Melnikov


The lower representatives of the aliphatic mercaptan series (up to C4) are effective fumigants against some species of insects. Beginning with the C5 alkyl mercaptan the insecticidal properties decrease. The unsaturated mercaptans are somewhat more active than the saturated ones with the same number of carbon atoms.
