Various selenium- and sulfur-containing volatiles have been detected and characterized as products of chalcogen exchange reactions. The formation of all possible selenium- and sulfur-containing trichalcogenide isomers (-SeSS-, -SSeS-, -SeSeS-, -SeSSe- and -SeSeSe-) was observed at room temperature in the solutions containing diselenide and trisulfide. Because of the low activation barrier of the selenium exchange reaction, these species are expected also to form in biological systems in the… CONTINUE READING
