Chemical formula: CS2
Carbon disulfide is made for commercial use by combining carbon and sulfur at very high temperatures. Carbon Disulfide, also called carbon bisulphide and dithiocarbonic anhydride, is a colorless, flammable and poisonous liquid with strong disagreeable chloroform-like odor. It is sparingly soluble in water but is miscible in hydrocarbons and ether. Carbon disulfide extremely hazardous as it is extremely inflammable and evaporates rapidly at room temperature
Application and use
Carbon bisulphide is applied to produce synthetic viscose fibres, tetrachloride, rubber accelerators, flotoreagents, agricultural pesticides and for synthesis of other different substances.
Packing and transport
Carbon disulphide is packing into railway tank car under nitrogen. Special instructions on handling with the product are given in MSDS and in the internationl safety card ICSC:0022.
