Simple one-step synthesis of water-soluble fluorescent carbon dots from waste paper

Author affiliations

Abstract

Water-soluble, fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) have been successfully synthesized from waste paper. The as-prepared CDs, with an amorphous structure and small particle size, exhibit good photostability, high photoluminescence quantum yields (PLQYs) and fairly low toxicity, which indicate potential applications in the field of biolabelling.
