Lime sulfur, also called calcium polysulfide, is a synthetic substance that consistsof divalent calcium cations and anionic polysulfide chains. Itis alkaline in nature with anorange color and has a pungent odor due to release of hydrogen sulfide.In addition, lime sulfur mixture consists of small traces of calcium thiosulfate, calcium sulfite, sulfur, and gypsum.Generally, it is manufactured by boiling calcium hydroxide and sulfur with small amount of surfactant and is widely used as fungicide, bactericide, keratolytic, and antipruritic.
