Applications

3-Mercaptopropionic acid is widely used in food and beverage industries as a flavoring agent. It is used in the production of PVC stabilizers, which are used as chain transfer agents in polymerizations. It can be used as primary or secondary, color stabilizer in combination with phenolic antioxidant for polymers. It acts as a sulfide ion equivalent and is utilized in the preparation of diaryl sulfide from aryl iodide.

Notes

Air Sensitive. Hygroscopic. Incompatible with bases, oxidizing agents and reducing agents.

Literature References

Can behave as a sulfide ion equivalent, e.g. the Cu-catalyzed reaction with aryl iodides leads to the diaryl sulfide, with loss of acrylic acid (reverse Michael): Synthesis, 523 (1989):

In the presence of a free-radical initiator, acts as a chain transfer reagent in the telomerization of short oligomers for biotechnological applications: J. Polym. Sci. A, 37, 2977 (1999).
