Ethanethiol, commonly known as ethyl mercaptan, is a clear liquid with a distinct odor. It is an organosulfur compound with the formula CH 3 CH 2 SH. Abbreviated EtSH, it consists of an ethyl group (Et), CH 3 CH 2, attached to a thiol group, SH. Its structure parallels that of ethanol, but with sulfur in place of oxygen.........Ethanethiol has a strongly disagreeable odor that humans can detect in minute concentrations. The threshold for human detection is as low as one part in 2.8 billion parts of air (0.36 parts per billion). Its odor resembles that of leeks, onions, durian or cooked cabbage, but is quite distinct....In the underground mining industry, ethanethiol or ethyl mercaptan is referred to as "stench gas". The gas is released into mine ventilation systems to alert mine workers during an emergency. In Ontario, mining legislation dictates that "The alarm system in an underground mine shall, consist of the introduction into all workplaces of sufficient quantities of ethyl mercaptan gas or similar gas to be readily detectable by all workers"..
