Scholarcy highlights

  • Over the span of the past decade, carbon dots synthesized from renewable organic resources have gathered a considerable amount of attention for their photoluminescent properties
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • This review will focus on organic CDs synthesized using clean chemistry and conventional synthetic chemistry from organic sources and their fluorescence mechanisms, such as quantum confinement effect and surface/edge defects, before outlining their performance in electronic applications, including organic photovoltaic devices, organic light-emitting devices, biosensors, supercapacitors, and batteries
  • Many challenges remain before the adoption of CDs can become widespread; their characterization, structure, functionality, and exact photoluminescent mechanism all require additional research
  • This review aims to summarize the current research outcomes and highlight the area where further research is needed to fully use these materials
