Berry Group Characterizes New Oxidation State for Sulfur

Professor John Berry and colleagues have detected and characterized a new oxidation state of sulfur, S23–. They document the finding in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS), in a paper published March 21. The new oxidation state, which the researchers are calling a ‘subsulfide,’ joins the sulfide (S2–) and disulfide (S22–) states.
