Molecules of sulphur.


Ans. The molecules of sulphur are
  1. Sulphur has catenating power.
  2. Rhombic sulphur is most stable allotrope of sulphur.
  3. A normal sulphur molecule consists of eight atoms of sulphur or it is octa– atomic (S8).
  4. Both rhombic and monoclinic sulphur contain S8 rings.
  5. The molecule has a crown shape.
  6. In S8 molecule, each sulphur atom is joined to two other sulphur atoms by single S-S covalent bonds.
  7. At high temperature it exists in smaller molecules like S6, S4, S2, S etc.
