A new generation of diatomic sulfur (1) has been achieved in a remarkably simple process by treatment of elemental sulfur with sodium hydride in the presence of phase-transfer catalysts. This facile generation of 1 has been trapped with olefins, diene, and triene to give cycloadducts as the form of cyclic sulfides in high yields.
