The chemical added to LPG to help detect its leakages is:

A

isobutene

B

ethylamine

C

methyl mercaptan

D

ethyl mercaptan

Answer

LPG gas is basically propane and butane, and it is odorless in its natural state. The smell that you notice when there is a leak is actually the stench of an entirely different agent, called Ethyl Mercaptan (C2H6S). This substance is added to the gas when it leaves the main storage terminals.
