(±)-Arsenicin A (AsA), (±)-1, the first natural polyarsenical to be isolated, has the adamantane-type structure of the mineral arsenolite (As₄O₆), in which three of the oxygen atoms have been replaced by methylene groups to give an organometallic, arsenic–oxygen cage of C₂ symmetry. Heating of a benzene solution of AsA with aqueous sodium sulfide produces, by reductive desulfurization of the intermediate sulfur analog (±)-2, the monosulfide cage (±)-4, which contains two As–As bonds and which...[Show more]
