Structure of thiosulfonate ester.
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]
