This article presents the conversion of a single source precursor namely 1-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-3-(4-ferrocenylphenyl) selenourea (P4Me) to FeSe by aerosol assisted chemical vapor deposition under the influence of two surfactants i.e. triton X-100 and span. Fabricated films were characterized with PXRD, SEM and EDS. The interaction of surfactants with precursor was investigated with cyclic voltammetry to have the glimpse about the mechanism of morphological changes. Fabricated films have the ability to degrade the methyl violet in the presence of direct sun light.
