Investigation of the thermal decomposition of methyl and ethyl disulfides Patrick, William Nicholas

Abstract

The kinetics of the thermal decomposition of methyl and ethyl disulfides were studied in a quartz reaction vessel. The reactions were followed by means of a mercury manometer and chemical analyses for reaction products were carried out at various stages of the reactions. A mechanism for the decomposition process is proposed on the basis of the results obtained.
