This paper presents information pertaining to the chemo-mechanical synthesis of (Cd,Zn) Se thin films with a variable composition which has been brought about with the objective to study deposition history and growth kinetics, as well as structural changes and the optical properties. The effect of various process parameters, such as deposition time and temperature, concentration of species, speed of the substrate rotation, pH etc., on the growth and quality of the films is studied experimentally. At first sight, mechanistic interpretation of the reaction mechanism is given based on the influence of the process parameters on the film growth and the compositional, structural, microscopic and optical characteristics of $Cd_{1-x}Zn_xSe$ thin films. The films are crystalline over the whole range studied with a predominant wurtzite structure for $0\leq x
