Advances in the application of high pressure in carbon dots
Carbon dots (CDs) have drawn significant attention due to their superior properties including outstanding water solubility, low toxicity, favorable biocompatibility, photobleaching resistance, high chemical stability, and ease of modification. The investigations on CDs are increasing steadily and distinctly focused. However, the use of high pressure in the study of CDs has been explored only in the past few years. These studies provide new insights into the nature of the structures and optical properties of CDs. Herein, we provided a review to introduce the recent advances in the application of high pressure in CDs to researchers from various areas and encourage them to dedicate themselves to this interesting exploration discipline.
