Used as a solvent and pesticide intermediate, it is also the main raw material for methylsulfonyl chloride and methylsulfonic acid products
Dimethyl disulfide, also known as dimethyl disulfide, is used in the synthesis of organophosphorus insecticides such as betamethasone and imidacloprid. It is also used as an intermediate for methylthio meta cresol, an intermediate for thiopropyl phosphorus, and as a purifying agent for solvents and catalysts.
Used as a passivation agent for solvents, catalysts, pesticide intermediates, coking inhibitors, etc. Dimethyldisulfide reacts with cresol to produce 2-methyl-4-hydroxybenzenesulfide, which then condenses with O, O-dimethylsulfophosphoryl chloride in an alkaline chemicalbook medium to obtain sesquitophos. This is an efficient and low toxicity organic phosphorus insecticide with excellent control effects on rice borers, soybean heartworms, and gadfly larvae. It can also be used as veterinary medicine to eliminate cowfly maggots and cow wall lice.
