Organic Compounds Sulfur
Transcript of Organic Compounds Sulfur
Sulfur Storage Area
Released from marshes and a product of volcanic eruptions.
Gunpowder is made from a mix of sulfur, potassium nitrate, and carbon (charcoal).
Mine drainage exposes large quantities of mineral sulfides to oxygen. The oxidation transforms the sulfide into sulfate.
Caused by sulfur emissions. It has increased with humans burning fossil fuels.
Amino acids containing sulfur are considered nonpolar and hydrophobic.
These amino acids are called methionine and cysteine.
Rocks created and formed on Earth
Pieces of rocks and matter found in or around the ocean
Chemical Reactions Involved
Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)
Caused by volcanic eruptions, forest fires, burning of coal, and the processing of certain metal ores.
An anion that forms as condensation and falls from the atmosphere to the ground as rain or snow.
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S)
A gas known for its strong scent of rotten eggs
Decomposition of sulfur compounds caused by an absence of oxygen
Organic and Inorganic Reservoirs
Deep Ocean Rocks
Pathway Of Movement
Chemically reduced mineral forms
Gas that is toxic to plants and animals in large quantities
