1,2-bis(2-methylallyl)disulfane was synthesized from sodium sulfide and 3-chloro-2-methylpropylene. The structure of the target product was confirmed by GC-MS, 1H-NMR and elemental analysis. Cell viability assay, flow-cytometric analysis and protein expression results showed that 1,2-bis(2-methylallyl)disulfane could significantly inhibit the proliferation, and induce the apoptosis of human HepG2 cells.
