Scholarcy highlights

  • In this work, water dispersible fluorescent carbon nanocrystals were synthesized by a simple, green and low cost hydrothermal method using Syzygium cumini as a carbon source at 180 °C for 6 h
  • It was noticed that none of the metal ions quenched the fluorescence intensity of carbon NCs at 438 nm except for Fe3+, indicating the formation of Fe3+ ion-carbon NCs complexes
  • The linear range was observed in the concentration range of 0.01–100 μM with the corresponding detection limits of 0.001 μM, respectively
  • The carbon NCs were used as probes for imaging of fungal cells
