Clearly the positions of the second methyl derivative also affect considerably the dipole moment value, showing the highest effect in 4,6-DMDBT; the addition of two methyl groups considerably reduces the dipole moment to very low values (compared to DBT), which in part explains the difficulties to desulfurate this molecule.
The 4,6-DMDBT and its alkyl derivatives {x,4,6-TMDBT, (x = 1,2,3)} show competitive adsorption sites located in the aromatic rings, which enhances the problem to desulfurate these molecules.
