The products obtained by heating thiostearic acid in methanol, aqueous methanol, ethanol, or aqueous ethanol have been found to consist of hydrogen sulfide, distearoyl sulfide, methyl or ethyl stearate, thiostearic acid, and stearic acid, the last of which has been detected only in the case of aqueous alcohols. On the basis of the above results, the following scheme may be involved, at least in part, in the formation of carboxylic ester and hydrogen sulfide by heating the thio acid in alcohols:
