      ZnS nanocrystallites were synthesised by pyrolysis method using Zn (cinnamtscz)2 and ZnCl2 (cinnamtsczH)2 (cinnamtsczH = cinnamaldehyde thiosemicarbazone) as single source precursors. The prepared ZnS nanocrystallites were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction, UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopy. The peak broadening in XRD and emission at shorter wavelength in fluorescence spectra showed the presence of nanocrystallites. The blue shift in UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy also proved the formation of nanocrystallites. TEM images show presence of plate-like and spherical ZnS nanoparticles obtained from Zn(cinnamtscz)2 and ZnCl2 (cinnamtsczH)2 respectively.

      Cubic Co9S8 and hexagonal CoS nanocrystallites were prepared by pyrolysis and solvothermal decomposition methods using Co(LH)2Cl2 and CoL2 (where LH = thiosemicarbazones of furfuraldehyde, cinnamaldehyde and 4-fluoro-acetophenone) as single-source precursors. These nanocrystallites were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction, UV–Vis, PL and Raman spectroscopic techniques. From TEM images, the average grain size of asprepared cobalt sulphide nanocrystallites was found to be 7–10 nm. Depending on experimental conditions, various morphologies such as spherical, pyramidal, hollow spheres, etc. are observed in the TEM images.
