Tuning the morphological features of nanoparticles has a great impact on the electrical, optical as well as photocatalytic property. In this study, we have synthesized cadmium sulphide (CdS) nanoflakes and CdS nanospheres via a simple chemical route. The average particle size of CdS nanosphere and CdS nanoflakes calculated from small-angle X-ray scattering studies are 22 nm and (diameter similar to 5 nm and length similar to 70 nm) respectively. Due to modulation in the shape there is a effective change in the electrical properties of CdS nanoflakes. Finally the photocatalytic performance of CdS nanoflakes towards rhodamine b shows greater efficiency than CdS nanoparticles due to high surface area. (C) 2019 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
