    This study focuses on the analysis of disulfide oil market in Russia. The report consists of 6 Sections, contains 56 pages, including 9 figures, 12 tables and 3 appendices.
    Methodologically, the work was carried out in a "desk" research. Analyzed information sources, we used data of state bodies - Federal Service of State Statistics of Russia, JSC "Russian Railways" (statistics of rail transportation), Federal Customs Service of Russia (data on foreign trade operations). Also, data of companies, the Internet media materials and scientific and technical literature.
    The first chapter details technology disulfide oil production, potential sources of raw materials.
    In the second chapter provides quality product and describes the potential disulfide oil producer.
    The third Section of the report presents data on foreign trade and other substitutes dimethyl disulfide oil in Russia in 2005-2011.
    The fourth chapter analyzes data on import prices for dimethyl disulfide.
    In the fifth chapter of the report deals with the potential of consumption disulfide oil.
    The sixth Section presents forecast of development of Russian market disulfide oil to 2020.
    The Appendix presents data on demercaptanization hydrocarbon resources in Russia, addresses and contact information of enterprises, potential consumers disulfide oil and a list of sources used.
