Abstract

A one-step, corrosion-assisted reaction was developed to synthesize copper sulfide (CuS) from elemental copper and sulfur in water at 60 °C. The as-prepared polycrystalline CuS consists of polyhedral-shaped 2-3 μm crystallites. CuS forms by the oxidation of copper metal in the presence of sulfur, whereas in the presence of water, a continuous solid-state reaction occurs without passivation by the product.
