Abstract

Wöhler and Wegwitz1 tentatively assumed the formation of sulphur monoxide as an unstable intermediate compound in the decomposition of sulphur sesquioxide and thus accounted for the formation of thiosulphate and polythionates. Neither Partington and Vogel2 nor Wöhler and Wegwitz obtained sulphur monoxide during the decomposition.
