Identification of Disulphur Monoxide as an Absorbing Species in Carbonyl Sulphide Discharge Products

Abstract

IN a recent article1 an absorption spectrum in the 2650–3250 Å region, obtained from the products of an electrical discharge through carbonyl sulphide vapour, was described. The carrier of this spectrum was tentatively identified as C3SO, an analogue of carbon suboxide. This same absorption spectrum was also observed after the flash photolysis of carbonyl sulphide.
