By virtue of their non-toxic nature and their attractive photoluminescence (PL) properties, Carbon-dots (or C-dots) represent an emerging class of environmentally benign multifunctional materials. They exhibit excitation-dependent emission and demonstrate colloidal and structural stability. As a result, C-dots are promising candidates for a wide spectrum of applications.
