Selenium disulfide is an inorganic compound with the approximate formula SeS2. Both sulfur and selenium catenate (form chains and rings) readily, and mixtures of selenium and sulfur likewise give rise to numerous "alloys".[1] This compound is not an analogue of sulfur dioxide.

Medicinal selenium disulfide

The material commercially called selenium disulfide is sold as an antifungal agent in shampoos for the treatment of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis associated in the scalp with Malassezia genus fungi.[2][3][4] In the United States, a 1% strength is available over-the-counter, and a 2.5% strength is also available with a prescription. At the 2.5% strength, selenium disulfide is also used on the body to treat tinea versicolor, a type of fungal skin infection caused by a different species of Malassezia.

Chemical composition

Structure of 1,2,3-Se3S5

Selenium disulfide has a composition that approximates to SeS2 and is sometimes called selenium sulfide. However, as used in proprietary formulations, it is not a pure chemical compound but is a mixture where the overall Se:S ratio is 1:2. The compounds are cyclic Se–S rings containing a variable number of S and Se atoms, SenS8−n.[1] Selenium disulfide can cause discoloration of the hair and alter the color of hair dyes. It may also discolor metallic jewellery.

Other selenium sulfides

Many selenium sulfides are known. A useful means for characterization is 77Se NMR spectroscopy. Chalcogen ring interconversion pathways.[5] Selenium monosulfide (SeS) is the only selenium compound so far identified as a carcinogen in animals.[6] Selenium monosulfide, along with elemental selenium and sulfur, has been used in medicinal preparations in the past,[7] causing confusion and contradiction[8] as to exactly what form selenium is in in any given topical preparation.[9]
