Sulfur Supplying




  a bright yellow element

There is an important ingredient in oil and coal compounds (organosulfur), in natural gas (H2S(g)), and mineral sulfides and sulfates; which was classified as an sulfur element in 1777 by Lavoisier.

Following strontium, sulfur is the seventeenth most abundant element since it is 0.0384% of the Earth’s crust.

About sulfur

Look closely at the picture, blue flame can be seen during sulfur burn.

:How to produce

Most sulfur obtained through superheated water injection in underground deposits and piping out molten sulfur directly ( Frasch process ).

During this method sulfur be made with high purity up to 99.9 percent.

The second and third source for sulfur extraction can be  oil and natural gas through H2S reduction reactions.

In addition to the fact that sulfur has some isotopes, also many of its allotropes have also been found in the nature.

Sulfur and its reaction

Sulfur Oxides

Among the different stable sulfur oxides, Sulfur dioxide and sulfur trioxide are commonly found.

Sulfur dioxide is a colorless gas which is pungent, and nonflammable (d= 2.8 kg/m3 m.p= -72.5 ˚C )

The liquid form of SO2 is used as a organic solvent that can solve organic compounds better than water.Also SO2 can be use as a precursor in SO3 production.

As you know the direct combustion of sulfur and the roasting of metal sulfides are the two main methods for the synthesis of SO2:

S(s)+O2(g)→SO2(g) Direct combustion

2ZnS(s)+3O2(g)→2ZnO(s)+2SO2 (g) Roasting of metal sulfides

The another sulfur derivative is sulfur trioxide soluble which like the SO2 is colorless ( d= 2.00 g/cm3 m.p= 62.3°C(α-), 32.5 °C(β-), 16.8 °C ( γ-form ) )

As mentioned before, SO3 obtain of SO2 and can be use in SO4 synthesis as a precursor.

2SO2(g)+O2(g)⇌2SO3(g) Exothermic, reversible reaction


Hydrogen Sulfide H2S

H2S, Other names Dihydrogen monosulfide, Sour gas or Sulfane can define as a diprotic acid.

Equilibrium reactions of this acid:



Other Sulfur containing Compounds

Well known strong acid is sulfuric acid ( H2SO4 ) which is the most significant compound of sulfur used in modern industrialized societies as well.

SO3(g) + H2O(l) → H2SO4 (aq) 

Safety and important points

  • As possible it must keep away from  water or even fog and keep container containing sulfur  tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
  • Sulfur is stable under normal conditions generally.
  • When handling and transferring sulfur and its derivatives, in addition of wearing protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection you have to avoid breathing dust, fume, gas, mist and vapors is necessary.


In chemicals production

Sulfuric acid, synthetic fibers, pigments, matches, explosives( including gunpowder), hydrogen sulfide, sulfur trioxide, thionyl chloride, carbon disulfide (an important organic solvent).

Application of sulfur in agriculture

Sulfur is an important component of plant protein and plays an important role in making metabolic compounds such as nitrogen, carbohydrate, and protein. It also plays a role in plant photosynthesis
