71. The Chemistry of Carbon Subsulfide
Stadlbauer W., Kappe Th., Sulfur Reports (1999), 423-445

Abstract: This review summarizes the syntheses and reactions of carbon subsulfide, S=C=C=C=S. Carbon subsulfide can be synthesized for preparative purposes by decomposition of carbon disulfide in an electric arc. For spectroscopic purposes the thermolysis of S-heterocyclic precursors is described as a way which has found much interest. Reactions of carbon subsulfide are mainly cyclizations with 1,3-binucleophilic agents to give six-membered heterocycles, oxidative addition of platinum metal complexes or self-condensation to polymeric (C3S2)x.
