Inorg Chim Acta 1987 126:79-82
Different electron binding energies have been observed for the structurally distinct sulfur atoms in the metal polysulfido complexes studied. The sulfur atoms nearest to the metal are similar in character to those in mineral sulfides. Sulfur atoms adjacent to those bonded to the metal are appreciably different, with 2p binding energies approximately 1 ev greater, while those one atom more remote from the metal have a 2p binding energy approaching, but still less than, that for bulk elemental sulfur. These binding energies are of relevance to the identification of sulfur species present at the surface of sulfide minerals under flotation conditions.
