Ethyl and Isopropyl Thionocarbamate

An excellent collector for non-ferrous metal sulfide flotation, exhibiting outstanding selectivity and specific separation performance for copper, lead, zinc, molybdenum sulfide ores, etc.


Thionocarbamate D'Ethyle Et D’isopropyle:

Ethyl and isopropyl thionocarbamates are chemical compounds used as reagents in various applications, particularly in the mining industry for mineral flotation. These substances belong to the thionocarbamate family, which are derivatives of carbamate with a thiocarbamate functional group (CS(NH2)2).

Features and Uses:

  • Flotation Collectors: Ethyl and isopropyl thionocarbamates are employed as collectors in the mineral flotation process. They act as chemical agents to promote the adhesion of mineral particles to air bubbles, thereby facilitating their separation from other components in the ore.
  • Targeted Minerals: These reagents are often used in the flotation of metal sulfides, such as copper, lead, and zinc sulfides.
  • Selectivity: Thionocarbamates can provide some selectivity in the flotation process, allowing for the specific targeting of certain minerals.


  • Handling: As with any chemical reagent, it is essential to follow safe handling practices, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Storage: Ethyl and isopropyl thionocarbamates should be stored in accordance with safety guidelines, avoiding sources of heat, ignition, and contamination.
  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS): The product-specific safety data sheet should be consulted for detailed information on handling, storage, and associated precautions.
