The ternary chalcopyrite CuInSe2 nanoparticles were synthesized by the wet chemical technique. X-ray diffraction shows that nanoparticles have an elemental proportion near to stoichiometry and possess tetragonal structure. Transmission electron microscopy shows that nanoparticles are of uniform shape and size. The thermal analysis of the nanoparticles is carried out by recording thermogravimetric, differential thermogravimetric and differential thermal analysis curves. The obtained results are discussed in detail in the paper.
