3-(Methylmercapto)Propionaldehyde Production Cost Analysis 2020
3-(Methylmercapto)propionaldehyde, also known as 3-(Methylthio)propionaldehyde or methional, is used as a food flavour for making baked food, spices, soft drinks, and candy. It is also used as an intermediate. It has wide applications in organic synthesis as solvents as well as reagents. They are used in the synthesis of particular compound classes, for example, agricultural chemical, property-enhancing additives, pharmacological drugs, chemical resistant polymers, detergents, and rubber antioxidants.
In appearance, it is a colourless liquid and is a degradation product of methionine. It is also used to flavour potato-based snacks, namely potato chips, that is one of the most popular foods containing methional. Methional has both aldehyde and thioether functional groups. It is readily soluble in alcohol solvents, involving propylene glycol and di propylene glycol.
