Transcript of Organic Compounds Sulfur

SULFUR CYCLE
Organic Compounds
Containing Sulfur

Human Influence
Sulfur Storage Area
Carbon Disulfide
Released from marshes and a product of volcanic eruptions.
Gunpowder
Gunpowder is made from a mix of sulfur, potassium nitrate, and carbon (charcoal).
Acid Mine
Mine drainage exposes large quantities of mineral sulfides to oxygen. The oxidation transforms the sulfide into sulfate.
Acid Rain
Caused by sulfur emissions. It has increased with humans burning fossil fuels.
Terrestrial Rocks
Ocean Sediments
Amino acids containing sulfur are considered nonpolar and hydrophobic.
These amino acids are called methionine and cysteine.
Amino Acids
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.
Oxidation
Sulfate
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

Oxidation
Decomposition of sulfur compounds caused by an absence of oxygen
Organic and Inorganic Reservoirs
