Higher sulfur oxides
Higher sulfur oxides are a group of chemical compounds with the formula SO3+x where x lies between 0 and 1. They contain peroxo (O-O) groups and the oxidation state of sulfur is +6 as in SO3.
Additional recommended knowledge
Colourless polymeric condensates are formed in the reaction of gaseous SO3 or SO2 with O2 in a silent electric discharge. The structure of the polymers is based on β-SO3 ( one of the three forms of solid SO3) with oxide bridges (−O−) replaced randomly by peroxide bridges(−O−O−). As such these compounds are non stoichiometric.
