A simple, fast, energy and labour efficient, carbon dot synthesis method involving only the mixing of a saccharide and base is presented. Uniform, green luminescent carbon dots with an average size of 3.5 nm were obtained, without the need for additional energy input or external heating. Detection of formation moment for fructose-NaOH-produced carbon dots is also presented.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
