2,5-Dimercapto-1,3,4-thiadiazole is used in synthesizing polymers and heavy metal and basic salts. It acts as an additive in lubricating oils, greases and in electrode compositions. It also acts as an intermediate for pharmaceuticals and dyes, as a chelating agent in the analysis of metals. It also serves as an anticorrosion and antirust agent.
