Cadmium Sulfide Nanoparticles/CdS Nanopowder Application:

Cadmium Sulfide Nanoparticles represents an important area of research due to their applications in biology, medicine, engineering, energy storage and production, etc. The properties of functionalized materials can be superior to those of the pristine ones, and new applications were found based on their properties. For example, functionalized CdS Nanoparticles have a tremendous potential in labeling biological entities such as cells, tissues and biohazard particles (bacteria, viruses). The functionalized CdS Nanoparticles have found applications as photocatalysts, as fluorescence probe in the determination of uracil and thymine or nucleic acids, or as fluorescence single shot probe for mercury(II). Furthermore, the functionalization of CdS Nanoparticles or the sensitization of CdS Nanoparticles onto other materials (e.g. reduced graphene oxide [16e18]) are approaches to enhancing its photocatalytic activity. CdS Nanoparticles functionalized with mercaptocarboxylic acids was also reported. Thus, functionalized CdS Nanoparticles have been obtained by one step synthesis, using mercaptoacetic acid as capping agent and sodium or ammonium sulfide as source for sulfide ion and also by microemulsion method, using mercaptoacetic acid under argon. In continuation of our interest about Cadmium Sulfide Nanoparticles, we reported the synthesis of CdS Nanoparticles functionalized with mercaptoacetate anion using three different strategies.
