Studies in the chemical behaviour of some compounds of sulphur

1. Hydrogen sulphide and sulphur dioxide react in carbon tetrachloride (kept at — 16° C.), in presence of moisture, to give a yellow solution which contains disulphur monoxide—the anhydride of the hypothetical thiosulphurous acid. For the formation of the oxide, sulphur dioxide has to be in large excess.
2. The chemical behaviour of disulphur monoxide in the yellow solution was identical with that of the oxide obtained by the combustion of sulphur, under oxygen at low pressure.
3. A spectrophotometric study showed identical behaviour of disulphur monoxide in the two solutions.
