The results of investigation of the growth mechanism of SnS thin films prepared by hydrochemical deposition by means of a scanning probe microscopy are presented. According to the results of a comparative analysis of layers morphology at different growth stages and the use of fractal formalism growth model of SnS films by clustercluster aggregation with elements of self-organization is proposed. It is shown that there is a solid layer, which again are deposited particles of the solution. The process has expressed periodic self-organizing nature. The study showed that the proposed model of film growth SnS when hydrochemical deposition agrees well with ex-periments and proves difficult coagulation mechanism of the formation of hard phase of the saturated aqueous solution.
