Pyrosulfuryl chloride, also known as sulfuryl chloride or carbonyl sulfide chloride, is a colorless gas commonly used in organic synthesis as a chlorinating agent. It is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, synthetic fibers, and various pesticides.
When rubber is exposed to pyrosulfuryl chloride, it can cause cracking and swelling, leading to a decrease in the rubber's overall strength and flexibility. Additionally, the chloride can corrode the rubber, leading to a decrease in its resistance to water and chemicals.
