Sulfur

  1. 1. LEAH DEMIRJIAN Sulfur
  2. 2. The Basics bright yellow non-metallic very low conductivity element; atomic number 16 burning sulfur= SO 2 easily distinguishable - the tenth most abundant mineral in the universe
  3. 3. The Source volcanoes salt domes hot springs
  4. 4. Sulfur can be found… but the best specimens are found in Italy.
  5. 5. Uses of Sulfur m a t c h e s anti- bacterial kills parasites black gunpowder f i r e w o r k s insecticide/fungicide vulcanization
  6. 6. Physical Properties and Characteristics <ul><li>very soft, lightweight, and brittle </li></ul><ul><li>hardness of 1.5-2.5 </li></ul><ul><li>produces a white streak </li></ul><ul><li>feels greasy when rubbed </li></ul><ul><li>smells like matches, </li></ul><ul><li>& emits pungent </li></ul><ul><li>odor when burned </li></ul>native sulfur
  7. 7. Heated Sulfur melts at 108 degrees celsius odor intensifies when heated SO 2, or burnt sulfur, smells like rotten eggs sulfur burns with a blue flame often cracks in contact with heat dissolves when placed in heated water latin sulphurium = “burning stone” video
  8. 8. Sulfuric Acid -very harmful to skin, causes severe burns -used in fertilizer SO 2    +   (O)        SO 3 SO 3    +   H 2 O       H 2 SO 4
  9. 9. Concluding Notes <ul><li>-there are no known substitutions for sulfur </li></ul><ul><li>no research being done due to its abundance </li></ul><ul><li>when mentioned, sulfur almost always draws a disgusted reaction, but it is prominent in every day products and used greatly. </li></ul>
