A model of photolysis of PbS2O3 aqueous solutions has been proposed on the basis of identified photolysis products and semiempirical quantum-chemical calculations. The degradation of PbS2O3 starts with the dissociation of the sulfur-sulfur bond in the thiosulfate group via photochemical excitation and transition of the system a whole to the activated state, which is decomposed by the solvent. The interaction of the primary photolysis products with PbS2O3 results in the formation of final products.
