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, SEMand  TEM  in  order  to  confirm  their sizes  and structures
