Poster summary

In this work, the one-step chronoamperometric deposition at the potential -1 V vs SCE is used for the potentiostatic electrodeposition of tin sulfide in a mixture of SnCl2 and Na2S2O3 aqueous solutions. The effect of triethanolamine chelating agent on various properties of the electrodeposited SnS thin films was investigated. The optimum properties and the desired stoichiometry were achieved using the concentration ratio [Sn:TEA] = [1:1].
