Enzymes that were kept separate now are free to mix with the sulfenic acids to produce propanethiol s-oxide, a volatile sulfur compound that wafts upward toward your eyes. This gas reacts with the water in your tears to form sulfuric acid. The sulfuric acid burns, and your eyes tear up". ...Read more
