Abstract

Nanoparticles of zinc sulphide have been synthesized by a chemical method. Mercaptoethanol is used to passivate the surface of the particles. Under certain conditions highly luminescent particles emitting blue light at ∼425 nm can be synthesized. This blue light emission in nanoparticles of zinc sulphide is observed to be completely quenched when doped with iron or nickel metal ions.
