A force field for thiols, sulfides and disulfides has been developed based on the Kirkwood-Buff theory of solutions. Experimental activity coefficients for solutions of methanethiol/methanol, dimethyl sulfide/methanol, and dimethyl disulfide/methanol have been accurately reproduced. and the solubility of dimethyl sulfide in water has been calculated.
