Detailed Product Description:
This is a pale yellow powder with a particle size of 100 mesh. It
is insoluble in water but soluble in benzene, toluene and carbon
This is Reagent Grade material with a minimum purity of 97%.
Sulfur (or sulphur) is an abundant multivalent non-metal. Sulfur,
in its native form, is a yellow crystalline solid. In nature, it can
be found as the pure element and as both sulfide and sulfate minerals.
Its commercial uses are primarily in fertilizers, but it is also widely
used in gunpowder, matches, insecticides and fungicides. In a non-
scientific context it has historically been referred to as brimstone.
At room temperature, sulfur is a soft, bright-yellow solid. Elemental
sulfur has only a faint odor, similar to that of matches. Sulfur burns
with a blue flame that emits sulfur dioxide, notable for its peculiar
suffocating odor due to dissolving in the mucosa to form dilute
sulfurous acid. Sulfur forms stable compounds with all elements
except the noble gases.
A noteworthy property of sulfur is that its viscosity in its molten
state, unlike most other liquids, increases above temperatures of
200 °C due to the formation of polymers. The molten sulfur
assumes a dark red color above this temperature. At higher
temperatures, however, the viscosity is decreased as depolymerization
One of the direct uses of sulfur is in vulcanization of rubber, where
polysulfides crosslink organic polymers. It reacts directly with
methane to give carbon disulfide, which is used to manufacture
cellophane and rayon. Also used in pulp and paper processing,
detergents, petroleum refining, manufacture of sulfuric acid, insecticides,
slow-release fertilizers, and pharmaceuticals.
Flammable solid. Dust may form flammable mixture with air. May be
harmful if swallowed or inhaled. Causes eye irritation. May cause
irritation to skin and respiratory tract.
