Facile synthesis of graphitic carbon quantum dots with size tunability and uniformity using reverse micelles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly luminescent graphitic carbon quantum dots (GQDs) are synthesized employing reverse micelles as nanoreactors. This method offers size tunability and narrow size distribution without any unpractical size separation process. Also, high quantum yields of maximum 35% at the 360 nm excitation wavelength are achieved.
