Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Methylbenzenethiol
Description2-Methylbenzenethiol, also known as O-toluenethiol or O-tolyl mercaptan, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as thiophenols. Thiophenols are compounds containing a thiophenol ring, which a phenol derivative obtained by replacing the oxygen atom from the hydroxyl group (attached to the benzene) by a sulfur atom. 2-Methylbenzenethiol is a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). 2-Methylbenzenethiol is an egg, garlic, and meaty tasting compound. Outside of the human body,.
