Water in Olive Oil Surfactantless Microemulsions as Medium for CdS Nanoparticles Synthesis

Mohamed E. EL-Hefnawy


A simple chemical route using ternary 1-butanol/olive/water microemulsion systems without surfactant has been developed to synthesize spherical CdS nanoparticles with an average diameter of ca. 45 nm. The CdS nanoparticles were investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-VIS optical absorption spectrum and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy measurements. By comparision with previous work, the present work confirmed the effective role of the surfactant in formation nanoparticles.
