Engineering Carbon Nanodots for (Nano)Technological and Biomedical Applications

Project description

Small molecule-derived carbon nanodots for challenging applications

Carbon nanodots are spherical nanoparticles that consist of a defined core and an outer functional shell that can be rationally designed by specific chemical approaches. Scientists of the EU-funded e-DOTS project wish to further advance the design and production process of carbon nanodots in order to expand their applications. For this purpose, they will elucidate the mechanism underlying the conversion of small molecules to nanoparticles and design carbon nanodots with unique properties. These engineered nanoparticles will find application in technological and biological challenges such as high-quality bioimaging and water catalysis.
