Petroleum & Refinery

2ME or BME is a highly volatile, yet water soluble material that is widely used in cleaning agents, as a corrosion inhibitor for performance material (pipe) and as a tin stabilizer in PVC production.   
 

Polymers and Rubber Applications

Normal mercaptans are used as reactants in the synthesis of antioxidants, which minimize undesirable effects from processes such as the stabilization of tin.
 
2-mercaptoethanol is also used as a chain transfer agent in processes where control of molecular weight is critical.
