Carbon disulfide is used in electronic vacuum tubes, in the manufacturing of carbon tetrachloride, rayon, soil disinfectants, as a solvent, manufacture of rayon, cellophane, and carbon tetrachloride, to produce rubber and chemicals. It is used in the manufacture of xanthates. It is also used as a reaction agent for the production of rubber vulcanization accelerators and soil sterilizers. It is an effective solvent for oils, waxes, sulfur and sulfur compounds. Carbon disulfide and carbon dioxide acts as resources for functional polymers. It is also useful for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds.
