Acronyms: TMBX, TMEX and TMOX are TMAXs

[S-(2H-thiophen-2-yl)]-methyl-alkyl xanthates (TMAXs) are xanthate (dithiocarbonate) derivatives of thiophen. TMAXs have been investigated as additives to rapeseed oil, which is applied as steel-steel lubricant. Selected chemical members of the TMAX compound class are:

TMEX: [S-(2H-thiophen-2-yl)]-methyl-ethyl xanthate
TMBX: [S-(2H-thiophen-2-yl)]-methyl-butyl xanthate
TMOX: [S-(2H-thiophen-2-yl)]-methyl-octyl xanthate
