Advanced Conductors





Diorganotin complexes of dithiocarbamates can act as single source precursors for the synthesis of SnS nanoparticles and thin films by aerosol assisted chemical vapour deposition (AACVD) (Pictures 1-3). 


The structures of precursors are determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) shows either single-step or double-step decomposition to SnS, depending on the type of precursor. The measured band gap of the films varies between 1.2 eV and 1.7 eV.
