A new bismuth sulfide emperical formula BiS2 was prepared by subjecting a 411 atomic mixture of Bi and S to a pressure of 50kb and a temperature of 800C for 5-10 min. Results of chemical and X-ray analyses are given. Although the structure could not be established with certainty, it is probable that Bi is present in both the 3 and 5 states as in, e.g., Bi3 BiS4 3-.
