Catalysis of the Sodium Sulfide Reduction of Methylviologene by CuS Nanoparticles

Feasibility was demonstrated for the catalysis of the sodium sulfide reduction of methylviologene (MV2+) in aqueous solution using cupric sulfide nanoparticles. The catalytic activity of the nanoparticles depends on their size. The basic features were found for the formation of the MV+· radical–cation in the reduction of MV2+ by HS− anions in the presence of CuS nanoparticles as the catalyst. This is an equilibrium reaction.
