CAS Number: 75-15-0. A colorless, flammable, poisonous liquid used as a solvent for rubber and as an insect fumigant. Chemical formula = CS2. Molecular weight = 76.14 g/mol. Learn More...
A highly flammable nonpetroleum solvent used for gas chromatography because of its relatively low signal generated in a flame ionisation detector. Carbon disulfide has the formula CS2. Reagent grade CS2 has an odour similar to rotten broccoli and can be ignited by contact with boiling water. It burns with a blue flame, providing CO2 and SO2 (sulfur dioxide). The explosive limits of CS2 are 1 to 50%. CS2 has a flash point of -22°F.
a toxic colorless flammable liquid (CS2); used in the manufacture of rayon and cellophane and carbon tetrachloride and as a solvent for rubber
chemical formula CS2; a compound used to manufacture products such as rayon and cellophane. Carbon disulfide is produced naturally by microbial activity in marshes and in volcanic ash. Since carbon disulfide does not adhere well to sediments, if it comes into contact with soil, it could percolate into groundwater, where it is very soluble. CS2 can also add to photochemical smog development when it reacts with other organic substances in the atmosphere, such as methane or oxides of nitrogen.
Reduced sulfur gas CS2 formed predominantly in industrial processes, but also emitted from natural sources. Following its oxidation by the hydroxyl radical it is transformed largely to carbonyl sulfide (COS).
Carbon disulfide is a colorless liquid with the formula CS2. It has a pleasant odor that is like that of chloroform, although it is usually impure yellowish with an unpleasant odor like that of rotting radishes due to traces of other sulphurous species, such as carbonyl sulfide (COS).
