Yes that's why I'm asking in this section. According to the web there is no such thing but if I look at the molecule I have in mind; S=C(NO3)2, it looks plausible as far as my lack of understanding is concerned. It obviously cannot exist but S=C=S and C(NO3)4 does. I'm appealing to someone to give me some direction to understanding why.

Do you have access to Scifinder and/or Beilstein? Furthermore, if a molecule can't be found, doesn't mean it can't exist.

In this case, if it could be prepared, I would expect it to readily polymerize to a polymeric thioether. It would also be quite sensitive to hydrolysis.

As far as I can tell, you're interested in S=C(NO2)2, which should be dinitrothioxomethane.

a search on scifinder reveal that this molecule (Thiodinitromethane) don't exsit. however, there is a chance that this molecule has been synthesized but the work is kept confidential. In scifinder you will get results only for patent, article and conference released in the public domain (unclassified). One famous example is ammonium dinitramide. In the 70's the soviet union synthesized ammonium dinitramide. The soviet patented ammonium dinitramide but kept the patent behind the iron curtain because the compound was very promising as an oxidizer in rocket propellant (superior to ammonium perchlorate). In the late 80's the american re-discover ammonium dinitramide, the patented the compound but they didn't kept the patent secret. so now ammonium dinitramide is a U.S invention (the patent is for SRI international)
