tertiary dodecyl mercaptan (TDM)
Explanation:
Mercaptans such as tertiary dodecyl (TDM) and normal-dodecyl mercaptan (NDM)
have long been used as chain transfer agents to modify free radical polymerization in polystyrene, SBR rubber, ABS and other polymers. Chain transfer agents are necessary to control the molecular size and weight so that the resulting polymers have good processability and other properties required for their use.
