Size Selective Synthesis of Sulfur Nanoparticles and their Anti cancer Activity
Publication Type
Conference Paper

Sulfur is an important element has many practical applications in present as nanoparticles. Nanosize sulfur particles also have many important applications like in pharmaceuticals, medicine, syn-thesis of nano-composites for lithium batteries, mod-ification of carbon nano tubes [1]. Different methods were used for nano-sized particle synthesis; among those, chemical precipitation, electrochemical me-thod, micro emulsion technique, composing of oil, surfactant, co-surfactant, aqueous phases with the specific compositions and ultrasonic treatment of sulfur-cystine solution [2]. In this work Sulfur nano-particles (S NPs) were prepared by a quick precipita-tion method with and without using a surfactant to stabilize the formed S NPs.
The synthesized S NPs were characterized by XRD, SEM and TEM in order to confirm their sizes and structures shows in Figure1.
