Diethyl Disulfide Properties

Diethyl Disulfide

Molecule Structure Image



Diethyl disulfide is used as a solvent for a wide range of organic and inorganic materials. It is one of the simplest organic substance containing sulfur, used as a presulfiding agent for catalysts in the refinery and petrochemical manufacturing process especially in the ethylene manufacturing to control the formation of coke and carbon monoxide. It is also used in steel mill furnaces to control dusting. It is a chemical intermediate for wide range of organic synthesis.
