I work with polymers and on blending different types a sulphurous 
odour is often noticed. The odour appears to be a type of 
mercaptan. It may be from the degradation of the microbicide 
5-chlor-2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one with reducing agents. The 
question is how can I confirm this and identify the odour? Is 
GC/Mass spec. a viable option? And what conditions would I need?

Yoour ideas and support are awaited in anticipation.
Thanks , MIKE
