Thiosalt

Thiosalt

 

(or sulfosalt), a salt of a thio acid. Thiosalts resemble the salts of oxy acids but differ in the substitution of sulfur atoms for oxygen atoms. Unlike unstable thio acids, thiosalts are stable and have found practical application (see, for example, SODIUMTHIOSULFATE).

No cause of the acidification was found, but when I added hydrochloric acid to a sample, release of colloidal sulfur showed that the acidification was caused by thiosalts formed by oxidation of pyrite in the mine's concentrator, and the rest is history.
The air-catalysed oxidation of thiosalts was described by Gary Rempel, FCIC (Waterloo).
