Abstract

Carbon dots (CDs) have emerged out as a potential material amongst the carbon family for a wide range of applications including chemical / biological sensing, photocatalysis, bioimaging, etc. The green synthesis of these CDs from natural sources is gaining the significant interest of peer community for their wide utility. In, we present a facile one-step pyrolysis method for CDs synthesis from Aloe-Vera extract, which show bright blue luminescence under UV light with a quantum yield of 12.3%. Further, ex-situ morphological, structural and optical characterizations reveal their high quality and excitation independent emission behavior with the presence of carboxyl, hydroxyl functional groups. Furthermore, these CDs were studied for Fe (III) sensing in water without any surface modifications and assessed for their light activated antibacterial activity against E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
