Lower sulfur oxides
The lower sulfur oxides are a group of chemical compounds consisting of:
Additional recommended knowledge
In these the average oxidation state of sulfur is 2 or less. Interest in the lower sulfur oxides has increased because of the need to understand terrestrial atmospheric sulfur pollution and the finding that the extraterrestrial atmospheres of Io, one of Jupiters moons, and Venus contain significant amounts of sulfur oxides. Some compounds reported by early workers such as the blue "sesquioxide", S2O3, formed by dissolving sulfur in liquid SO3 appears to be a mixture of polysulfate salts of the S42+ and S82+ ions.
