A wide variety of complexes of Group II, III, IV and V elements with dithiocarboxylate, xanthate, dithiocarbamate, selenocarboxylate and N,

Several of these complexes on thermolysis yield bulk as well as nanoparticles of metal chalcogenides (ME : M = Zn, Cd, Hg, Pb; E = S, Sc, Te) and M2S3 (M = In, Sb, Bi)). The latter have been characterized by XRD, EDAX, SEM, TEM, SAED and photoluminescence.
