Sulfur

Sulfur is an odourless, tasteless, light yellow solid. Favorable conditions are a reactive element that combines all other elements, except for gases, gold and platinum. Insoluble in water, but soluble in carbon disulfide. The sulfur dioxide burns with a blue flame oxidized.

Application

Sulphuric acid production

The main commercial use of sulphur is a reagent in the production of sulphuric acid (H 2 SO 4). Sulfuric acid is the number one chemical substance in the industrialised world, which is required in large quantities in lead acid batteries for automotive use.

Fertilizer

Sulfur is increasingly used as a fertilizer component. The most important sulfur shape for fertilizer is mineral calcium sulfate.

Fungicide and insecticide
Sulfur is one of the oldest fungicides and pesticides. “Powder sulfur” is a common fungicide for sulfur, grape, strawberry, many vegetables and some other products in the form of powder. It has a good effect on black spots as well as a wide variety of ashing diseases.

Vulcanization of Natural rubber
Sulfur is also used in vulcanization of natural rubber as a fungicide in the production of black powder, detergents and phosphate fertilizers.
