In recent decades, the nanomaterial science has made surprising progress. Owing to their new physicochemical properties, induced by the effect of size, various fields of applications are today possible particularly in medicine, optoelectronic, photovoltaic…etc. specifically tin disulfide (SnS2) has a great potential for use in a several range of applications then attracted much attention.
The aim of this work is the synthesis as well as the investigation of optical and structural properties of SnS2 nanoparticles. Great effort has been devoted to the facile synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials due to their properties and for synthesis method, chemical rout is used in presence of CTAB molecule as stabilizing agent. The quantum size effect on optical properties of these nanoparticles is followed during their growth by UV-visible spectrophotometry. The crystalline structures were analyzed by XRD diffraction characterization of SnS2 nanoparticles in presence of CTAB and the size is around of 9 nm.
These results show that the organic molecules play a crucial effect on the optical properties and morphology of nanoparticles.
