The title mol-ecule, diisopropyl (diisopropoxy-phosphoryl-methyl-sulfonyl- methyl-sulfonyl-meth-yl)phospho-nate, C15H34O10P2S2, represents a disulfone of a phosphate ester that has been investigated as a target for chemotherapy. The disulfone has four half-mol-ecules with crystallographic twofold symmetry in the asymmetric unit. The S=O, P=O and P - O bonds average 1.439, 1.472 and 1.567 Å, respectively. Three isopropyl groups are each disordered over two sites, two of them in a 2:1 ratio and the other in a 3:2 ratio.
