Hyposulfite

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Not to be confused with hydrosulfite, which is another name for the dithionite anion (S
2
O2−
4
).

Hyposulfite may refer to:

  • The thiosulfate anion (S
    2
    O2−
    3
    )
  • S
    2
    O2−
    2
    , a reported sulfur oxyanion. However salts containing S
    2
    O2−
    2
    and HS
    2
    O
    2
    are not well characterized; they would be conjugate bases derived from the parent hyposulfurous acid (H
    2
    S
    2
    O
    2
    ), which is also of doubtful existence.[1]
