Abstract

ZnS, a large band gap material, is useful in electro-luminescence and optoelectronic devices. We herein report a method for preparation of nanosized ZnS particles in micellar medium of anionic surfactant sodium dodecylsulphate. The optical properties of the prepared ZnS nanoparticles have been studied by absorption and fluorescence methods. Electron microscopic characterization has evidenced triangular particles, an uncommon observation in the synthesis of nanomaterials. PVC membrane containing nano ZnS dispersions has been prepared and its response as Zn2+ ion-selective membrane has been reported.
