Ethyl Mercaptan (EM) LPG odorant

75-08-1
Product overview

Arkema produces Ethylmercaptan in Beaumont, Texas, from which we serve propane odorization needs in North and South America. We also store and re-package Ethyl Mercaptan in our Rotterdam plant (The Netherlands). We also offer alternatives to Ethyl Mercaptan for odorization of propane and butane with our Vigileak® product line. Mercaptan is an essential additive for LPG to ensure safe use of this energy source. Let us know if you need help determining the best odorant for your application, Arkema can help!


Ethyl Mercaptan is also used in agrochemical synthesis to make Phorate and Clethodim, as well as many other pesticides. Contact Arkema, a worldwide Ethyl Mercapan supplier!
