In the field of organic chemistry, sulfur (or sulphur) containing carbon compounds are referred to as organosulfur compounds. Organosulfur compounds are responsible for the kind of unpleasant odors of decaying organic matter. Among the 20 common amino acids, two are organosulfur compounds. Thioether, thioester, thiol derivatives, thiourea, sulfonamides, and sulfoxide are some of the important classes of sulfur products. Sulfur compounds are involved in many chemical reactions as useful intermediates including the Herz reaction, which is a chemical reaction of an aniline-derivative with disulfur dichloride to give an organosulfur compound, Herz salt, as an intermediate from which the corresponding sodium thiolate is formed.
