Agrochemical and pharmaceutical synthesis intermediates
Mercaptans can be used for some intermediate synthesis in agrochemical and pharmaceutical markets. Sodium methyl mercaptide (SMM), ethyl mercaptan (EM) and tertio-butyl mercaptan (TBM) are used worldwide to produce intermediates entering for instance in terbufos or phorate agrochemicals.
Arkema also produces Amines, Oxygenated Solvents and Hydrazine Hydrate that can be useful in synthesizing intermediates.
