2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) is an organosulfur compound with the formula C6H4NSCSH. The molecule consists of a benzene ring fused to a 2-Mercaptothiazole ring.2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) is used in the vulcanization of rubber.Using MBT, rubber vulcanizes with less sulfur and at milder temperatures, both factors give a stronger product. This effect was reported in 1921 by workers at Pirelli and at Goodyear Tire & Rubber.
MBT has Slightly foul odour and bitter taste, non-poisonous. Easily soluble in ethyl acetone, acetone, dilute solution of sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate, soluble in ethyl alcohol, not easily soluble in benzene, insoluble in water and gasoline. 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) is a hemi-ultra accelerator, extensively used in vulcanization of natural and synthetic rubbers.2-Mercaptobenzothiazole mainly used in manufacture of rubber tire, rubber belts, rubber shoes and other technical rubber goods.
