An Introduction to Organosulfur Chemistry R J Cremlyn Professor of Organic Chemistry, University of Hertfordshire The physical and chemical properties of sulfur and the nature of the sulfur–carbon and sulfur–oxygen bonds are important factors in the widespread uses of organosulfur compounds as bioactive agents, in both medicine and agricultural pest control strategies. Other industrial uses of organosulfur compounds, including detergents, dyes, medicinal drugs, pesticides and artificial sweeteners, are also covered. Providing an easy to read, balanced review of this increasingly important area, An Introduction to Organosulfur Chemistry

∗ outlines the role of sulfur in biological systems

∗ surveys the special characteristics of organosulfur compounds and the major methods for their synthesis

∗ provides an insight into the differences between organosulfur and the analogous oxygen compounds

∗ identifies the unique features of organosulfur compounds and their varied uses both in industry and as key reagents in organic synthesis
