Carbon Dots for Environmental and Energy Applications: Advances, Challenges and Promises

Abstract

In recent years, carbon dots (C-dots) have become a rising star for a spectrum of environmental and energy applications, ranging from chemical catalysis, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis to energy storage such as batteries and capacitors, due to their unique physicochemical, optical and electrical properties. This review discusses the up-to-date progress on carbon dots with an emphasis on their environmental and energy applications along with some discussion on challenges and promises in this exciting and promising field.
