In the title compound, C15H12S4, two phenyl-dithio-carboxyl-ate units are linked through a methyl-ene C atom on a twofold rotation axis. The central S - CH2 - S angle of 116.9 (5)° is significantly larger than the ideal tetra-hedral value. The dihedral angle formed by the two phenyl rings is 68.2 (1)°. The refined Flack parameter of 0.2 (3) does not permit unambiguous determination of the absolute structure.
