Syntheses and odor characteristics of 1-alkylthio-2-butanethiols, 1-alkylthio-2-butanols and their derivatives. We previously have proposed a presumption that most meaty flavor compounds have a common characteristic structural unit that contains sulfur or oxygen heteroatoms on the adjacent two carbon atoms (one of the heteroatoms should be a sulfur atom).
