The title compound, Na+·C6H5O2S2 -, at 100 (2) K has ortho-rhom-bic (Cmca) symmetry. The compound has a network structure. It is of inter-est with respect to inclusion phenomena and structure-activity relationships. The Na atoms are chelated by two different benzenesulfonothioate anions via -S and O atoms. Additional coordination by O atoms of two other benzenesulfonothioate anions results in coordination number 6 for each Na atom in the extended two-dimensional polymeric structure. The structure exhibits disorder of the anion in the two-dimensional arrangement. The phenyl group is disordered equally over two positions.
