Abstract: THIS THESIS DESCRIBES THE SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERIZATION AND POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS TO A SERIES OF BINARY AND TERNARY METAL SULFIDES, WITH THE PRIMARY FOCUS ON GROUP 15 METAL SULFIDES. THE KEY OBJECTIVES ARE TO FABRICATE METAL SULFIDE MATERIALS OF DIFFERENT MORPHOLOGIES (SIZE AND SHAPE) AND TO STUDY SOME INTERESTING PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIALS OBTAINED. THE THESIS COMPRISES OF TWO MAIN PARTS. PART I (CHAPTERS 2 TO 4) FOCUSES ON THE MATERIAL FABRICATION, WHERE WE WILL DISCUSS ON HOW VARIOUS METAL SULFIDES OF VARYING MORPHOLOGIES ARE OBTAINED BY CHEMICAL MEANS, FROM EITHER SINGLE SOURCE OR DUAL SOURCE PRECURSORS. PART II (CHAPTERS 5 TO 7), WE PRESENT THE STUDY ON THE POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS (NLO, BIO-IMAGING AND PHOTO-CATALYTIC), BASED ON SOME OF THE INTERESTING PROPERTIES EXHIBITED BY SOME OF THE MATERIALS FABRICATED. THE MAIN CHARACTERIZATION TECHNIQUES EMPLOYED INCLUDE PXRD, HRTEM AND FESEM.
