Production of thioorganic compounds:
Several organosulfur compounds are produced using hydrogen sulfide. These include methanethiol, ethanethiol, and thioglycolic acid.
For well over a century, hydrogen sulfide was important in analytical chemistry, in the qualitative inorganic analysis of metal ions.
Precursor to metal sulfides:
As indicated above, many metal ions react with hydrogen sulfide to give the corresponding metal sulfides..
Hydrogen sulfide is used to separate deuterium oxide, or heavy water, from normal water via the Girdler sulfide process.
