Crystalline powders of the photovoltaic material candidate copper zinc tin sulfoselenide Cu2ZnSn(SxSe1x)(4) (CZTSSe) with x = S/(S + Se) from 0 to 1 were characterized by Sn-119 solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD). Two series of powders were characterized: one synthesized by a ceramic route and having cationic stoichiometry 2:1:1 and another one synthesized by a colloidal route, having a cationic Cu-poor Zn-rich composition and used as precursors for photovoltaic active films. The homogeneous anionic composition of the samples, which is a feature needed for the NMR analysis of the anionic distribution, has been proved by PXRD. The x values determined from the quantitative analysis of the Sn-119 spectra are in very good agreement with those deduced by PXRD. In addition, the Sn-119 spectra reveal, for the first time, the random distribution of the chalcogen atoms, which seems to be a general process. Finally, a qualitative, but thorough, analysis of the line width of the Sn-119 NMR spectra was undertaken to investigate the Cu/Zn cationic disorder, a feature which can seriously affect the optoelectronic properties of CZTSSe. The cationic disorder turns out to be dependent on the type of cationic composition. Indeed, regardless of x ratios and the synthesis methods, our samples containing A-type defect complexes [V-Cu + Zn-Cu] are less prone to Cu/Zn disorder.
