A detailed study of the reaction of thioacetamide, thiobenzamide, thiobenzoic acid, thiophenol and ethanethiol (emitted from industrial stacks or as industrial wastewater effluents and ultimately becoming environmental pollutants) with Chloramine-T has been made. Odor studies based on the sensory approach, have been performed on the reactants as well as the reaction mixtures containing the oxidation products, using odor test panels to determine the odor threshold levels. In all cases the median odor threshold concentration has been raised substantially by reaction with CAT. From the preliminary studies it is concluded that this oxidative technique has potential application in air and water pollution odor control.
