  • Abstract

    Cadmium sulphide (CdS) nanoparticles were synthesized using thiourea as a source for sulphide ion in the presence of disodium succinate. The prepared nanoparticles were characterized by IR spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The photocatalytic activity of CdS was tested for degradation of methylene blue and rhodamine B. CdS catalyst shows high activity for the photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue dye.
