Question

The compound sodium thiosulfate pentahydrate,Na₂S₂O₃·5H₂O ‍‍‍‍‍‍, is important commercially to the photography business as “hypo,” because it has the ability to dissolve unreacted silver salts from photographic film during development. Sodium thiosulfate pentahydrate can be produced by boiling elemental sulfur in an aqueous solution of sodium sulfite.
