Hyposulfite

Summary

Hyposulfite may refer to:

  • The thiosulfate anion (S
    2
    O2−
    3
    )
  • S
    2
    O2−
    2
    , a reported sulfur oxyanion. However salts containing S
    2
    O2−
    2
    and HS
    2
    O
    2
    are not well characterized; they would be conjugate bases derived from the parent hyposulfurous acid (H
    2
    S
    2
    O
    2
    ),[inconsistent] which is also of doubtful existence.[1]
  • Dithionite (S
    2
    O2−
    4
    ) as in sodium dithionite.[2]
