    • Abstract


      The hydrolytic reactions of esters and amides of thiosulphurous acid are investigated in a homogeneous medium. The esters are hydrolysed by alkali to give sulphide, sulphite and thiosulphate whereas the amides are resistant towards alkali. Both the esters and amides are hydrolysed by acids giving hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide, polythionates and elemental sulphur. The hydrolysis of these esters and amides in presence of sulphurous acid and thiosulphuric acid gives tetrathionate and hexathionate, respectively.
