The synthesis and characterization of bis-[2,2,2-trifluoroethyl) dithiocarbamato]copper(II) and its implementation as an effective precursor for cuprous sulfide film growth was studied. The compound was synthesized via the one-pot reaction of NaN(CH2CF3)2, CS 2 and CuCl2 2H2O in ether under N2. The volatility characteristics of the compound were analyzed and compared to those of Cu[S2CN(CH2Ch3)2] 2 using reduced-pressure thermogravimetric analysis. The compound was shown to exhibit greatly improved volatility and cab be used for the growth of high-quality cuprous sulfide films on amorphous glass substrates.
