Global Dimethyl Sulfide Market: Introduction
Dimethyl sulfide is an organosulfur compound which has garlic like odor. Dimethyl sulfide is also known as methylthiomethane. Dimethyl sulfide is flammable liquid which is produced commercially and is also found in nature. Dimethyl sulfide has found various applications in different industries such as chemicals, petrochemicals, food & beverages and polymers. Dimethyl sulfide is used as chemical reagent, catalyst modifier and reaction medium in chemical industry. In petrochemical industry dimethyl sulfide can be used as sulfidation agent, presulfiding agent, and fuel additive and as an extraction solvent. Apart from it dimethyl sulfide is widely used flavoring agent in mainly in beers. Apart from alcoholic beverages dimethyl sulfide is also used in non-alcoholic beverages, candy, ice cream, baked goods, puddings and gelatins, and syrups. Also, dimethyl sulfide is used in fiber spinning, ion exchange resins and modification of nylon fibers in polymer industry. Dimethyl sulfide is listed as a synthetic flavoring substance in the US Food Chemical Codex. Dimethyl sulfide can be toxic at high concentrations, owing to which there are safety standards on the exposure of dimethyl sulfide.
