An X-ray crystallographic investigation into the structures of a number of organic disulphides has been undertaken. The crystal structures of diphenyl disulphide, dibenzyl disulphide, 2,2'diamino diphenyl disulphide and dicinnamyl disulphide have been determined accurately from three-dimensional data. The results of preliminary investigations on p,p'dicarbethoxy diphenyl disulphide, p,p'dinitro diphenyl disulphide, p,p'dimethyl diphenyl disulphide, p,p'diamino diphenyl dioulphide and p,p'ditertiary butyl diphenyl disulphide arc also reported. The function of organic disulphides as anti-wear and as extreme pressure additives to lubricating oils is related to the S–S and S–C bond lengths and to the dihedral angles. The observed S–S and S–C distances and dihedral angles are discussed in this context.
