1,5-Dithiacyclooctane is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH2)6S2. This cyclic dithioether is a colorless oil that is soluble in polar solvents, it is studied as a chelating ligand and as an unusual example of an electroactive saturated compound.[1] It was first prepared in 4% yield by dialkylation of 1,3-propanedithiol with 1,3-dibromopropane.[2]
