Carbon disulfide

Formula: CS2 | CAS: 75-15-0

Synonyms: carbon bisulfide

The primary use of carbon disulphide is in manufacture of Rayon fibre. Subsequent processing of the fibre releases carbon disulfide in substantial quantities. Carbon disulfide is a selective solvent and used as a fumigant and insecticide.
