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.
