  • The synthesis and crystal structure of C3H4OS 2 was discussed. The compund posseses pseudo-twofold symmetry and consists of a twisted five-membered ring of three C and two S atoms with a ketone O atom in an equatorial position. It was found that atom O1, C1, S1 and S2 were in distorted trigonal planar arrangement but atom C2 and C3 were in slightly distorted tetrahedral environments. Analysis shows that in the crystal structure, symmetry-related molecules are held together by very weak hydrogen bonds between the keto O atoms and the methylene H atoms.
