Paper Abstract

The combination of Microwave-Hydrothermal techniques has been used in the last few years to synthesis of nanocrystalline powders. The Microwave assisted synthesis is generally much faster, cleaner and more economical than the conventional methods. We present here, a versatile process of Novel Microwave-Solvothermal technique for synthesizing nanocrystalline CdS particles. The effect of different parameters such as time, temperature, solvents and molar ratio of Cd2+ to thiourea on the phase(s) formation of nanocrystalline Cadmium Sulphide under Microwave- Solvothermal conditions using Microwaves of 2.45 Ghz frequency are investigated. The obtained CdS are characterized by the Optical properties, powder x-ray diffraction and SEM.
