Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS) is used in API and intermediate synthesis as the sulfonium salt (in epoxidation reactions) or in borane reducing agents (BH3-DMS).
Key statement: A rubber composition includes a sulfur-crosslinkable diene rubber, from 1 to 100 parts by mass of carbon black and/or from 5 to 150 parts by mass of an inorganic filler, from 0.5 to 30 parts by mass of a sulfur-containing compounding agent, and from 0.01 to 20 parts by mass of a phosphine borane compound based on 100 parts by mass of the sulfur-cross-linkable diene rubber.
In this regard, different alcohols (methanol, ethanol, propanol, and ethylene glycol) and nonalcohols (formic acid, dimethyl ether, hydrazine, ammonia, borane, and sodium borohydride) were recommended as replacements for the [H.sub.2] fuel [6-8].
