Structure of thiosulfonate ester.

Thiosulfonates are organosulfur compounds with the formula RSO2SR'. Thiosulfonate esters are produced by oxidation of disulfides or by the reaction or organosulfonyl halides with thiolates.[1]

Alkali metal thiosulfonates are the conjugate base of thiosulfuric acid. They are prepared by the reaction of organosulfonyl chlorides with sources of sulfide.[1][2]
