A Raman Study of the Isomers and Dimer of Hydrogen Sulfite Ion
Abstract:Raman spectra of aqueous solutions of hydrogen sulfite ion (SHO3 -) were collected over temperatures of 275 to 340 K. The change in peak intensities with temperature was used to assign peaks to the hydrogen sulfite isomers. The HOSO2 - isomer has a peak at 1023 cm−1 and the HSO3 - isomer has a peak at 1052 cm−1. The relative strengths of the peaks were determined and used to measure the equilibrium quotients for hydrogen sulfite ion.
Q 1 = [HOSO2 -]/[HSO3 -]
Q 2 = [S2O5 2-]/SHO3 -]2
No evidence was found for a hydrogen sulfite dimer other than disulfite ion, S2O5 2-.
