A hydrothermal route to water-stable luminescent carbon dots as nanosensors for pH and temperature

Wang, Chuanxi; Xu, Zhenzhu; Cheng, Hao; Lin, Huihui; Humphrey, Mark G.; Zhang, Chi


Carbon dots (CDs) as a class of heavy-metal-free fluorescent nanomaterials has drawn increasing attention in recent years due to their high optical absorptivity, chemical stability, biocompatibility, and low toxicity. Herein, we report a facile method to prepare stable CDs by hydrothermal treatment of glucose (glc) in the presence of glutathione (GSH). With this approach, the formation and the surface passivation of CDs are carried out simultaneously, resulting in intrinsic fluorescence...[Show more]
