ZnS nanoparticles with different morphology; spherical, ellipsoidal particles' nanotubes and nanorods, could be successfully synthesized from quaternary W/O microemulsion system. The morphology of the final products could be clearly confirmed by the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The effect of cosurfactant on size and morphology of the obtained products have been explored in this work. The key controlling parameters such as the molar ratio of
