Sulfur chemistry is becoming increasingly important as the role of this element is explored in both biological and environmental fields. After the initial chapters have discussed the synthesis, reactivity, and properties of the compounds in general, each of the next nine chapters takes a specific sulfur containing functional group and expands the discussion on synthetic procedures. The final chapter looks at the major uses of organo-sulfur compounds and their impact on biological and environmental areas.
