In this paper, we discuss the synthesis of carbon–sulfur composite (a-C:S) films by vapour phase pyrolysis of maleic anhydride and sulfur. Structural changes in the system are analysed by scanning electron microscopy and powder X-ray diffraction. Microhardness test depicts an increase in the value of hardness with an increase in sulfur concentration. Electrical conductivity of composite samples varies with sulfur concentration.Magnetoresistance (MR) measurements show a drastic increase in the value of MR for the samples prepared at < 900°C. Thermal stability of these samples is analysed by thermogravimetric analysis, which depends on the host structure and the amount of intercalated species.
