Any compound that contains either the S2- ion or sulfur with an oxidation stat of -2, such as CS2.
Chemical compound composed of a metal and sulfur.
One of several minerals containing negative sulfur ions bonded to one or more positive metallic ions.
a compound of sulphur and some other element that is more electropositive
A compound of sulfur with more than one element, sometimes containing gold and silver.
a mineral compound characterized by the linkage of sulfur with metal or semimetal; eg galena, PbS, or pyrite, FeS2
(4) an inorganic compound characterized by the linkage of S2(2-) and S(2-) with a metal or metalloid.
Sulfur-containing, as in sulfur-oxide
Hydrogen sulfide is a gas that can be problematic in groundwater, resulting in the characteristic "rotten egg" odor. The gas is commonly generated by the action of bacteria in the decay of organic matter, but its presence does not necessarily indicate bacterial contamination of the water. Water containing this gas may also corrode iron and other metals in the water system, or stain plumbing fixtures and cooking utensils. It can be difficult to quantify the level of hydrogen sulfide in water due to its escape as a gas.
(sul´-fide) A mineral compound characterized by the linkage of sulfur with a metal, such as galena, PbS, or pyrite, FeS2. Tabular — (tab´-u-lar) Said of a feature having two dimensions that are much larger or longer than the third, such as an igneous dike, or of a geomorphic feature having a flat surface, such as a plateau. Said of the shape of a sedimentary body whose width/thickness ratio is greater than 50 to 1, but less than 1000 to 1; blanket deposit. Said of a sedimentary particle or a crystal form that shows one dimension markedly smaller than the other two; prismatic. Said of a metamorphic texture in which a large proportion of grains are tabular and have approximately parallel orientation.
A mineral compound characterized by the linkage of the element sulfur and a metal or semi-metal. Examples include galena, PbS; pyrite (or fool's gold), FeS2; and sphalerite, (Zn,Fe)S.
(sul'-fide) A mineral compound formed through the binding of sulfur and a metal, such as iron in pyrite (FeS), copper and iron in chalcopyrite (CuFeS2), and lead in galena (PbS).
A compound of sulfur and some other element.
The term sulfide (sulphide in British English) refers to several types of chemical compounds containing sulfur in its lowest oxidation number of −2.
