Allergic contact dermatitis to rubber is caused by residues of chemicals used in manufacturing a rubber product. Several different additives are used to achieve a final product of the desired characteristics. Accelerators such as thiurams, dithiocarbamates, and mercaptobenzothiazoles are often...
Both mercaptobenzothiazole and mercapto mix should be part of the standard series.

To investigate the oxidative degradation of organic pollutants at the interface of manganese oxides and water, beta-MnO2 was prepared and its crystal structure and the specific surface area were examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) methods, respectively. 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole...

Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) compounds are well known contact allergens. To detect rubber allergic patients we use both MBT (2% in petrolatum) and a mercapto-mix with 4 constituents of 0.5% each in our standard series. In this article the EECDRG presents data...
