Allotropes of Sulphure. Producing plastic sulphur.

There are a large number of allotropes of sulfur. In this respect, sulfur is second only to carbon. The most common form found in nature is yellow orthorhombic sulfur, which contains puckered rings of S8. Chemistry students may have seen “plastic sulfur”;plastic sulphure is a mixture of long chain polymeric sulfur forms, two of which have been identified as allotropes.

This video represents how to produce plastic sulphur in chemistry lab. Read More…
