The hydrolytic reactions of tetrasulphur tetranitride are studied in a homogeneous medium. Alkaline hydrolysis gives sulphite, thiosulphate, sulphate and sulphide whereas the products in acid hydrolysis are mainly sulphur dioxide, elemental sulphur and hydrogen sulphide, with traces of polythionates. Under optimum conditions, tetrasulphur tetranitride reacts with sulphite consuming 2 moles of sulphite per mole of sulphur nitride to give 2 moles of trithionate. The reaction of sulphur nitride with thiosulphuric acid gives pentathionate and tetrathionate.
