Carbon disulfide is a colourless, toxic, highly volatile and flammable liquid chemical compound.Volcanic eruptions and marshes releases small amount of carbon disulfide.It is more reactive toward nucleophiles and more easily reduced.It is widely used in the synthesis of organosulfur compounds such as metham sodium.It is also used for an insecticide,solvent for phosphorus, sulfur, selenium, bromine, iodine, fats, resins,rubbers, and manufacture of viscose rayon, cellophane film, carbon tetrachloride.
