Sulfur is a chemical element with the symbol S and atomic number 16. It is abundant, polyvalent, and non-metallic. Under normal conditions, sulfur atoms form cyclic ocular molecules with a chemical formula S8. Elemental sulfur is a bright yellow crystalline solid at room temperature.
Sulfur is the tenth most common element in the universe and the fifth most common on Earth. Although sometimes found in pure and native form, sulfur on the Earth generally appears as sulfide and sulfate minerals. Being abundant in native form, sulfur was known in antiquity, being mentioned by its uses in ancient India, ancient Greece, China, and Egypt. In the Bible, sulfur is called sulfur, which means “burning stone”. Today almost all elemental sulfur is produced as a by-product of the removal of sulfur-containing contaminants from natural gas and oil. The largest commercial use of the element is the production of sulfuric acid for sulfate and phosphate fertilizers and other chemical processes. The sulfur element is used in phosphors, insecticides, and fungicides. Many sulfur compounds are odoriferous and odors of odorized natural gas, the smell of polecat, grapefruit, and garlic are due to organic sulfur compounds. Hydrogen sulfide gives the characteristic odor to rotten eggs and other biological processes.
