A study was conducted to demonstrate low-temperature solution-phase deposition of monosulfide (SnS) thin films. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) was used to determine the temperature needed to recover SnS from the en/edt solution. A multistep mass loss of ca. 50 wt % was observed that is consistent with the loss of organic species originating from the solvent mixture, with an end point of decomposition measured at 350 °C. FT-IR spectroscopy confirmed the loss of organic species after mild heating of the dried SnS ink to 350 °C under flowing N2(g) .
