( fine powder )
A chemical element (atomic
number 16), Sulfur is
used in a tremendous number of chemical formulas & manufacturing
processes from the production of batteries and detergents, to fertilizers
and fireworks. Amorphous or "plastic" Sulfur can be produced by
pouring molten Sulfur into cold water. Elemental sulfur is odorless.
It occurs naturally, and burns with a blue flame that emits Sulfur
Dioxide, notable for its peculiar suffocating odor. Sulfur is insoluble in
water but soluble in Carbon Disulfide. This is high quality ACS/Reagent
grade Sulfur, ideal for all chemistry & laboratory uses, not
to be confused with the useless
low-grade fertilizer Sulfur.
