Scholarcy highlights

  • In the present study Carbon Dots derived from Indian essential oils Clove, Basil, Turmeric and Cardamom have been synthesized and characterized for their potential exquisite applications
  • Spectroscopy techniques viz. UV-Visible, Fluorescence, FT-IR, TEM were employed for the characterization of CDs while biological activity was tested on sliced bread and spinach
  • Human MCF-7 cell line was used to study the antiproliferative effects of the CDs in vitro
  • The low cost, ease of synthesis and superior properties of these CDs synthesized from Indian essential oils may represent as a viable and true contender to their traditional counterparts
  • This work highlights the future prospects of the potential use of Carbon Dots based nanoparticles and their unpopular characteristics
