Preparation of some transition metal sulphides
Ternary sulphides, LnMS3 (Ln=rare earth metal; M=first row transition metal) and MV2S4 (M=Mg, Fe, Co, Ni and Zn) have been prepared by the reaction of appropriate ternary metal oxides with H2S or CS2/N2 vapours at elevated temperatures. Chemical analysis and x-ray powder diffraction of the products indicate formation of single-phases with unique crystal structures in many cases.
