Recent Studies from Annamalai University Add New Data to Biomolecular Research (Solid state synthesis and spectral investigations of nanostructure SnS2)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- New research on Life Science Research is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Tamil Nadu, India, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Nanometer sized SnS2 particles were synthesised by solid state reaction between tin chloride and thiourea in air at 150-350 degrees C. The structural, morphological and optical properties were characterized by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), FT-IR, FT-Raman, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), photoluminescence (PL) and UV-Vis spectra. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern of the product was indexed to the hexagonal phase of SnS2."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Annamalai University, "Crystallite size, microstrain and dislocation density were evaluated from the XRD data. EDS analysis indicated that the elemental ratio was similar to tin disulphide (SnS2). The blue shift in the absorption edge was observed from the UV-Vis spectrum."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The photoluminescence spectra showed two emission peaks corresponding to blue and red emission."
