sulphur is a non-metal element with 'pale yellow' color and atomic weight 32.06. It's found in solid state in nature. It has melting point- 15.2 oC and boiling point- 444.7 oC. It's insoluble in water.
sulphur is one of the basic chemical elements, widely found in nature. It captures 0.05 percent of earth's crust and that's why, it's called the 17th most abundant element found in earth crust. A small amount of sulphur is found in all living creatures, including humans. Also stakes of elemental sulphur are found in large amount around volcanoes.
A significant amount of sulphur compound like hydrogen sulfide, sulphur dioxide etc is found in various natural gases and oils. For the environment safety and purification of these gases and oils, sulphur compounds are removed from them, mostly by using claus process. Thus, these crude gases and oils are also a big source of elemental sulphur.
sulphur is not an element which is produced intentionally, but they are either occurred naturally or are recovered from the other processing.
sulphur has many uses in the industrial and daily life. The biggest commercial use of sulphur is in producting sulphuric acid which is used in lead acid batteries for automotive uses. Other uses of sulphur include gunpowder, fungicide, vulcanization of natural rubber, detergents, fertilizers etc.
