Abstract: Copper sulfide nanoparticles were synthesized by microwave irradiation, by the decomposition of [Cu(NH2CSNH2)2]Cl2 complex, formed by the reaction of copper(II) acetate, thiourea (Tu) in the presence of surfactant Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) used to characterize the product. The result nanoparticles have a diameter of about 60-70 nm.
