Methyl Mercaptan Market To Grow Owing To Rising Usage For Manufacturing Jet Fuels, Plastics And Pesticides Applications Till 2021 | Million Insights

Methyl mercaptan market is anticipated to gain a sizeable market share owing to high scale utilization in methionine synthesis. It is also widely used as an intermediate in manufacturing jet fuels, plastics and pesticides. The market for methyl mercaptan is expected to propel as it is found in vast variety of vegetables including onions & garlic, petroleum distillates, coal tar and sour gas used in oil fields. It occurs as a metabolite in human body for degradation of methionine and various other compounds.

Methyl mercaptan market faces a tuff challenge as it depresses the nervous system & respiratory system as the same way hydrogen sulfide does thereby causing respiratory paralysis and death. This may eventually lead to exposure of which clinical signs are mucous membrane and ocular irritation. It also causes nausea, staggering gait, headache, irritation and dizziness. Also observed is the paralysis of pulmonary edema and locomotor muscles. Its primary mechanism is observed in culmination with cytochrome oxidase.

Technological advancements and capital investments are initiated by the manufacturers to regulate the odor awareness. Initially no values were recommended to derive AEGL-1 values. For methyl mercaptan the level of distinct odor awareness (LOA) is 0.0019 ppm. LOA great helps chemical emergency respondents in measuring the awareness of exposure on odor perception among the public. Advancements lead to the reduction of AEGL-2 values to AEGL-3 values. These calculations are defined thresholds to monitor the inability to escape and are apt owing to the steep concentration response proximity for lethality.

AEGL 3 values were calculated on 4-h LC01 which 1% lethality. Uncertainty interspecies factor of 3 was deployed that considered sufficient attributing to the steepness of lethality concentration response relationship. It basically implies defined and limited individual variability. At times interspecies uncertainty factor of 10 is applied due to limited data. Mostly AEGL 3 values calculated with larger factor proves inconsistent with total database. Range of AEGL 3 values is defined from 7.3 ppm to 40 pp incase the total uncertainty factor is 30. It is highly unlikely that the people when exposed to methyl mercaptan in this range for apporx 11 hours would witness any lethal effects.

Additionally, utilization of uncertainty factor 30 will yield AEGL 3 values 2 to 4 fold less than AEGL 3 values defined for hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide possess a robust database which is attributed to the data that suggest that methyl mercapatan is less harmful and toxic than hydrogen sulfide. Also it would be highly inconsistent with total data set to enhance AEGL 3 values of methyl mercaptan which are less than AEGL 3 values defined for hydrogen sulfide. The concentration exposure time relationship stated for various irritant & systematically operating vapors. The gases are essentially defined by the equation Cn * t = k, where the value exponent ranges from 0.8 to 3.5.

To derive protective and conservative AEGL values in the lack of any chemical-specific exponent, basically temporal scaling is initiated using default values of n = 3. This is used for extrapolating from longer to shorter durations such as 10 min, 30 min, and 1 h also n is defined with the value of 1 when extrapolating from shorter to longer durations 8 h. Methyl mercaptan eventually also play a role in offering the toxic effects of fatty acids and ammonia in patients having chronic sever liver diseases.
