Abstract: Lead sulphide thin films have been successfully deposited by spin coating lead hexadecyl and octadecyl xanthate onto glass substrates and annealed at moderate temperatures. The thin films were characterized using powder x-ray diffractometer (p-XRD) and were found to be face centred cubic (FCC) with the (200) being the most preferred orientation. The optical band gaps obtained were 0.93 and 1.00 eV respectively for PbS from complexes (1) and (2) annealed at 350 °C. They were all blue shifted from the bulk value of 0.41 eV
