An earlier report from this laboratory defined the principal reaction between O-ethyl-N-methylthiocarbamate and chlorocarbonylsulfenyl chloride in the presence of water to give bis(N-ethoxycarbonyl-N-methylcarbamoyl)tetrasulfane. Also formed, in lesser amounts, are the corresponding tri-(3), penta-(5), and hexa-(6) sulfanes. For the present study, isotopically pure (approx. 99%) sulfur-34 carbon disulfide was used as a precursor for the syntheses of each of labelled 1 (60% overall yield) and 2 (59% overall yield), and these compounds were used in turn to derive mixtures of labelled polysulfanes.
