It is insoluble in light petroleum, and but slightly soluble in ethyl acetate, water, or carbon bisulphide.
The best is perhaps chloroform, and next to this carbon bisulphide.
One diagram illustrated the development in a particular county of the use of two bactericides, formalin and carbon bisulphide.
carbon bisulphide has been extensively used in California in the burrows of ground squirrels.
Another substance much used for destroying insects or similar pests is carbon bisulphide.
There still remain the sulphuretted hydrogen and the carbon bisulphide, both of which are extremely offensive to the nostrils.
carbon bisulphide is an infallible poison and has no effect upon colours when used in a perfectly dry state.
In the latter reaction various other compounds, such as carbon dioxide, carbon bisulphide and hydrocyanic acid, are produced.
Another defect is the volatility and inflammability of carbon bisulphide.
Cerous sulphide, Ce2S3, results on heating cerium with sulphur or cerium oxide in carbon bisulphide vapour.
