Nitrogen doped carbon dots: mechanism investigation and their application for label free CA125 analysis

Nitrogen-doped CDs (N-CDs) were firstly prepared by using pear juice as the carbon source and ethanediamine as a nitrogen doping precursor with a microwave assisted pyrolysis technique. Based on the fluorescence recovery induced by competitive adsorption and desorption, a label-free “turn on” fluorescence assay with high sensitivity and selectivity was proposed for the analysis of CA125.
