Elemental sulphur dissolved in organic solvents (such as chloroform, carbon tetrachloride and benzene) reacts rapidly and quantitatively, with aqueous alkali at room temperature, when this immiscible liquid mixture is homogenized by the addition of ethyl alcohol. The products of reaction under these experimental conditions are sulphide, thiosulphate and a small quantity of sulphite. A mechanism involving the intermediate formation and decomposition of dihydrogen sulphoxide, HSOH, is suggested for the reaction.
