Use of ZnS nanopowders for dye degradation

Abstract : In this study, we present the elaboration of small and monodisperse ZnS nanopowder with size ranging from 3 to 8 nm by a simple, low-cost and mass production chemical method. The nanoparticles were characterised by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), UV-vis absorption and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The photocatalytic activity of ZnS nanopowders was also investigated by using Rhodamine 6G water dispersed under UV illumination, sun light and in dark. ZnS nanoparticles appear to be a good candidate for potential environmental applications such as water purification.
