In the past few years there has been growing interest in two types of organic salts, those of sulfonium and oxysulfonium ions. Probably the better known are the sulfonium compounds. In general they are crystalline salts, and thet are water soluble giving neutral solutions. The trialkyl sulfoniym ion (fig. 1), like the quaetenary ammonium ion, has the tetrahedral structure except that in the sulfonium ion the fourth group is an unshared pair of electrons rather than a bonded group.
