Applications

Arsenic(III) sulfide is used to make infrared-transmitting glass, pyrotechnics, pigments, linoleum, electrical semiconductors and photoconductors. It acts as a reducing agent and serves as a tanning agent. It is also used for depilating hides and veterinary medication. Further, it is used as an inorganic photoresist to fabricate 3-D nanostructures. In addition to this, it is used in the treatment for acute promyelocytic leukemia.

Notes

Incompatible with acids, oxidizing agents, halogens, acids, diazo, azo compounds, halocarbons, isocyanates, aldehydes, alkali metals, nitrides, hydrides and strong reducing agents.
