2-Mercaptobenzothiazole, or MBT, is a pale yellow, crystalline substance with an unpleasant odour and a bitter taste. MBT is primarily used in the rubber industry as a non-volatile vulcanisation accelerator. MBT reacts with zinc oxide and sulfur to form an activated complex, which leads to cross-linkage via sulfur bridges as a result of the reaction with the long-chain rubber molecules. Following vulcanisation, MBT can be bonded in the vulcanizate or may be present as a substance incorporated in the polymer. The concentration of free MBT in the final product is dependent on the vulcanisation conditions and the vulcanisation auxiliary substances used apart from MBT. MBT is also used as an intermediate in the production of other accelerators, some of which may decompose during vulcanisation and emit MBT. Furthermore, MBT is used in the synthesis of the pesticide methabenzothiazuron (1-benzothiazole-2- yl-1,3-dimethylurea).
