Simple one-step synthesis of highly luminescent carbon dots from orange juice: application as excellent bio-imaging agents

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly photoluminescent carbon dots with a PL quantum yield of 26% have been prepared in one step by hydrothermal treatment of orange juice. Due to high photostability and low toxicity these carbon dots are demonstrated as excellent probes in cellular imaging.
