Scholarcy highlights

  • Additional HRTEM images, XPS and UV−visible spectra, and elemental mapping of carbon-transition metal nanocomposite particles
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • Carbon nanoparticles were prepared by refluxing the combustion soot of natural gas in nitric acid
  • The emission band energy of the carbon nanoparticle was very similar to that of much smaller carbon nanoparticles obtained from candle soot, suggesting that the photoluminescence might arise from particle surface states, analogous to the behaviors of semiconductor quantum dots with an indirect bandgap
  • Two pairs of well-defined voltammetric waves were observed, which might be ascribed to the peripheral functional moieties that were analogous to phenanthrenequinone derivatives
  • Such files may be downloaded by article for research use
