Scholarcy highlights

  • Carbon dots, as a new kind of carbon-based luminescent nanomaterials, have drawn widespread attention in the fields of fluorescence sensing, optoelectronic devices, and biological imaging
  • The selected precursors and different solvents are the key to the formation of three emission CDs
  • Detailed characterization and density functional theory calculations further indicate that the difference in emission color of CDs is due to the size of the sp2 conjugate domain
  • We used multicolor CDs as fluorescent probes to investigate their performance in detection
  • The above results indicate that the multicolor CDs prepared by us have great application potential in the fields of food safety control and optical devices
