Cuprous iodide (gamma-CuI) is an important semiconductor material having a bang gap of 3.1 eV often used for visible light assisted photoelectrochemical and solar energy conservation systems. We report the first and unique preparation of fine and precisely controlled gamma-CuI semiconductor nanocrystallites on the surface of a screen-printed carbon electrode using a photoelectrochemical copper nanoparticle deposition method with tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane (Tris) buffer solution as a control medium. Tris buffer helps to split (Cu2O)-O-1 and COO oxidation states through specific complexation mechanism and in turn to selective iodination of (Cu2O)-O-1 to the formation of gamma-CuI on the electrode. Stable and linear photoelectrochemical response was further demonstrated against variable light intensity up to 400 Klux using the gamma-CuI modified system.
