CAS 59-52-9 Usage
This product is an antidote. It is mainly used for the detoxification of arsenic or mercury-containing poisons. It can also be used for the poisoning of certain heavy metals (such as bismuth, antimony, cadmium, etc.).
2,3-Dimercaptopropanol reacts with Lewis gas to produce stable, insoluble and non-toxic arsenic compounds. Therefore, it is called the British anti-Lewis gas agent.
The species similar to the detoxification effect of dimercaptopropanol is sodium dimercaptosuccinate (C4H4Na2O4S2).
