The title compound is orthorhombic, space group Pbca, a = 8.523(1), b = 17.467(3), c = 9.449(1) Å, Z = 4, R = 0 052 for 878 observed reflections. The molecule is centrosymmetric with inversion at the middle of the double bond. The characteristic feature of the structure is an almost exactly planar O-S-C(H)=C'(H')-S'-O' moiety with the H···O' and H'···O distances of 2.55 Å, indicating much more weaker intramolecular hydrogen bonds than in the related ethylsulfonyl derivative studied earlier.
