The study on cobalt selenide has been carried out by XRD, SEM, EDAX, FTIR and UV-VIS studies. The x-ray powder diffraction study has shown that the Cobalt selenide has been crystallized in orthorhombic structure. The scanning electron microscope reveals the morphology of the particles as square type particles embedded in gelly layer similar to seeds embedded in pomegranate. The particle size is determined as 99nm . The analysis of EDAX has shown the percentage of Cobalt and selenium. The FTIR study has shown the presence of O-H bond and metal complex. The UV-Vis spectrum has shown high absorption in the ultra-violet region at about 365.7nm which makes the material to be suitable for UV filters.
