Abstract:
Carbon quantum dots have received much attention in recent past decades, due to their unique physical, chemical, optical and surface properties. carbon quantum dots exhibited excellent biocompatibility, photostability and innocuousness properties. Various precursors have been used as raw materials to synthesize carbon quantum dots. Nevertheless, all these methods suffer from some drawbacks like the requirement of tedious synthetic methodology or the use of toxic/expensive solvents and starting materials. Therefore, the development of facile and green carbon quantum dots is still highly desirable. In this study, we reported a controllable strategy for fabrication of fluorescent carbon quantum dots from natural precursor. Green and blue fluorescent carbon quantum dots have been synthesized by hydrothermal method and pyrolysis of soured cow-milk product, respectively, providing an easy way for the production of carbon quantum dots without the request of tedious synthetic methodology or the use of toxic/expensive solvents and starting materials.
