How violent is the reaction between ammonia and cs2? I want some thiocyanates to try the fake blood experiment

I tried it this morning by putting S + C powder in a stainless steel retort placed in a 900 C electric furnace and the end in a test tube cooled by water. But I was stupid. I saw all sulfur condensing in the test tube and I realized that this was way beyond the boiling point of S (445 C), so it did not have the time to react with the C(harcoal powder).
Carefully smell tests on the test tube gave hints to tiny amounts of CS2, but really very small, because almost all vaporized off unreacted.

I have to make a separate heater to vaporize the S and lead that over C heated to 900 C.

I guess the stainless will react with sulphur vapor particularly at 1000C
How did the stainless steel react to the sulphur vapour ?

I have assumed the carbon needs to be in lump form and the reactor sufficiently tall and only heated at the base with the upper part of the reactor below the boiling point of sulphur and therefore acting as reflux for the sulphur while letting the low boiling CS2 pass.




I am wg48 but not on my usual pc hence the temp handle.

Pyrite and charcoal can be heated together at 700C or higher to make CS2 without elemental sulfur. apparently that's how it was first produced, but I don't know about the yield or what are the side products.
