Progress is reported towards the development of a new route to obtain cadmium sulfide (CdS) thin films by using ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) ligand on the chemical bath deposition (CBD) method. Different chemical baths are used to study changes in the structures of the CdS films for different EDTA concentrations. X-ray diffraction (XRD) is used to prove the structural characterization of the samples, and to obtain the grain size with the Scherrer's equation. The pH variations
