This vulcanization intermediate product leads to MBTP (2-bis-benzothiazole-2,2'-polysulfide), which is the sulfurant active agents that introduce the sulfur into the polymer chain.
As expected, figure 4 shows that when the treated sulfur is used, a delay is observed in MBT formation.
Unlike with CBS, TMTD (tetramethylthiuramdisulfide) decomposition seemed to not be affected by the sulfur treatment (figure 5).
In order to observe the proposed TMTD behavior, TMTP (tetramethylthiurampolysulfide) was analyzed using both sulfur types.
34]S values were measured on a selection of native sulfur specimens from a wide geochemical and geographical range.
Hot springs and fumarole deposits fall below O[per thousand] as do sulfur samples from salt dome caps (Louisiana).
It is clear from the above discussion that just knowing the [delta]34S value for a sulfur specimen is not enough to determine the precise locality.
