This paper explains some inorganic reaction mechanisms of oxidation-reduction reactions involving chalcogen-chalcogen single bond, according to thermodynamic and kinetic data. DFT method is used to verify proposed mechanisms and conjectures by Gaussian09 program. All these efforts are put to demonstrate some general patterns in inorganic reaction mechanisms.

Key words: Inorganic reaction mechanism, Chalcogen, Chalcogen-chalcogen bond, Oxidation-reduction reaction
