Microwave Hydrothermal Synthesis of W-Doped CuS Nanoparticle


Article Preview

The CuS nanoparticles precursor have been synthesized by microwave irradiation, using copper nitrate and thioacetamide (TAA) as raw materials, dodecyl sodium sulfate as surfactants. After the precursor had being split with n-butyl lithium for 14 days, we synthesized w-doped copper sulfide nanoparticles with microwave hydrothermal method. The samples were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and fluorescence spectra.
