Rubber additives generally include sulfur, sulfonamide, thiazoles, carbon black, silica, amines, aliphatic esters, silanes and many other chemical compounds.
Prompted by the aforementioned findings and in the continuation of our ongoing research on thiazoles (24) and pyrazolines (25) as cholinesterase inhibitors, we designed a new series of thiazolylpyrazoline derivatives based on the molecular hybridization of thiazole and pyrazoline scaffolds.
Primary accelerators include thiazoles and sulphenamides.
In each class of materials, the aromatic moieties may be either benzene derivatives or heteroaromatics such as thiophenes, pyridines, pyrroles and thiazoles. Actually, the water soluble PAVs/PAEs are the most important conjugated polyelectrolytes materials due to their unique advantages of chemical modification in the main chain [18] and convenient functionalization of their side chains [19, 20].
The tree number "D02.886.675" identifies parent terms to thiazoles, which are D02 = organic chemicals and D02.886 = sulfur compounds.

Other common structural motifs within active clusters identified by this structural analysis were nitrobenzenes (including nitrophenols) and thiazoles. Nitrophenols are known protonophores and have been used in structural alert models to define uncouplers (Naven et al.
