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 . 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 . 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.
