Scholarcy highlights

  • A simple method for the synthesis of water-soluble carbon quantum dots has been developed by chemical oxidation treatment of the flour
  • We investigated the cytotoxicity of as-prepared CQDs using rat mesangial cells
  • The as-synthesized carbon quantum dots were tested to label and image rat mesangial cells in vitro and demonstrated to be highly promising biological fluorescent probes
