Scholarcy highlights

  • Aggregation-induced emission has unlocked a completely new research area corresponding to application potentials of luminescent materials
  • Considering various reports published on the AIE behaviour, we focus recent advances on carbon dots AIE
  • The TA -Cdots prepared by the Liu et al showed the excitation dependent PL, and aggregation-induced emission enhancement observed at 455 nm at an excitation wavelength of 350 nm due to the rotational hindering of the surface groups
  • Recent reports indicate polymeric fluorophores may form during the Cdot synthesis
  • It is essential to study the effect of such fluorophores on Cdot emission
  • With increasing the concentration of THF, a slight blue shift occurred and the quantum yield increased from 7.16% to 42.65%
  • AIE characteristics of Cdots can be employed for state-of-the-art applications similar to AIE macromolecules or AIE luminogens
  • Aggregation-induced emission characteristics of carbon dots can be employed for state-of-the-art applications similar to AIE macromolecules or AIE luminogens
