Electrosynthesis is a cost effective aDd viable technique for the synthesis of polycrystalline materials. In this study, thin fIlms of (ZnCd)Se ternary semiconductor belong to II-VI group were cathodically deposited onto Sn02 conducting glass and titanium substrates. XRD results show the polycrystalline wurtzite structure for the films deposited under the proposed conditions for all composition. Optical studies show a band gap value in the range of 2.78 to 1.71 eV as the fIlm composition changes from ZnSe to CdSe. SEM pictures show well defined particulate grains. The ESCA studies revealed the presence of carbon and oxygen in the films. The photoelectrochemical (PEC) studies have been conducted and the results are presented.
