Concomitant preparation of ZnS thin film and nanopowder forms from SILAR baths: An attempt to sort-out wastage problem

As wastage of a large percentage of source material used is the main disadvantage of successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) technique, in the present work, a new approach is adopted by simultaneously preparing thin films and powders from the SILAR bath solutions. The amount of source material used for thin film and powder form is estimated to find the resultant wastage. In this study, ZnS thin film and ZnS powder were prepared from the same SILAR bath. The characteristics of both the product were analyzed using X-ray diffraction, optical, energy dispersive X-ray analysis studies and the photocatalytic abilities of the prepared samples were determined and compared.
