Arsenic(III) sulfide is used in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia. It is an inorganic photoresist used in the fabrication of photonic crystals and 3-D nanostructures. It is also used as an acousto-optic material, pigment, tanning agent and chalcogenide glass for infrared optics. Further, it is used as an analytical test for presence of dissimilatory arsenic-reducing bacteria (DARB).
