Structural Aspects of Sulphur—Fluorine Chemistry

  • H. L. Roberts

Abstract

Sulphur can assume the valency states 6, 4 and 2 in compounds with fluorine. The hexavalent compounds are easily handled in the laboratory as they are stable to air and moisture. The lower valency states, by contrast, are readily hydrolyzed and the divalent compounds easily disproportionate. As a consequence of this sulphur hexafluoride has been a well established compound since it was first prepared by Moissan in 1900. Disulphur decafluoride was obtained and correctly identified by Whytlaw-Gray and Denbigh in 1934.
