Graphene Quantum Dots from Mangifera indica: Application in Near-Infrared Bioimaging and Intracellular Nanothermometry

We report a simple one-pot microwave-assisted green-synthesis route for the fabrication of bright red-luminescent graphene quantum dots using ethanolic extracts of Mangifera indica leaves, addressing them as mGQDs
