About Carbon Disulfide. Carbon Disulfide (a.k.a. CS2, Methanedithione) is a volatile, colorless liquid with an unpleasant ether-like odor. It is highly flammable and toxic and is released by volcanic eruptions. It is an important solvent for rubbers, fats, resins, asphalt, phosphorous, sulfur, selenium, bromine, and iodine.

Carbon Disulfide Handling. Carbon disulfide is transported in drums, tank trucks, special portable drums tanks, rail tank cars, barges, and ships. Air transportation is strictly prohibited. Carbon Disulfide should be stored in steel containers. Chromium stainless steels, glass, and ceramics may be recommended at elevated temperatures. Copper and its alloys should be avoided. Carbon Disulfide is highly volatile, has a wide flammability range, and low ignition temperature, leading to a readily combustible mixture with air. For this reason, containers must be filled with an inert gas blanket. In summer it must be kept in shade and sprayed with water to prevent pressure from rising.

Carbon Disulfide Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Carbon Disulfide are listed below.

  • Natural gas + sulfur (Folkin process; coproduced with hydrogen sulfide),
  • Metallurgical coke + sulfur (coproduced with hydrogen sulfide)

Carbon Disulfide Uses.The uses and applications of Carbon Disulfide may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Carbon Disulfide are technical and reagent grades (99.0 to 99.9% purity).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec Primary Commodity Prices are produced from a data-driven, mathematical approach, which starts with the extraction of data from various primary sources, including official trade records, futures market, statistics bureaus, governmental and international agencies. Such large volume of data is validated through advanced data processing techniques, and treated by means of statistical analysis for outliers removal. When faced with input gaps, data scientists and engineers employ mathematical models or machine learning techniques to estimate prices and ensure the completeness of the price assessments presented.
