We have developed a simple approach for the large-scale synthesis of water-soluble green carbon nanodots (G-dots) from many kinds of large food waste-derived sources. About 120 g of G-dots per 100 kg of food waste can be synthesized using our simple and environmentally friendly synthesis approach. The G-dots exhibit a high degree of solubility in water(More)
Using a simple method of mass production of green carbon nanotags (G-tags) from harmful cyanobacteria, we developed an advanced and efficient imaging platform for the purpose of anticancer therapy. Approximately 100 grams of G-tags per 100 kilograms of harmful cyanobacteria were prepared using our eco-friendly approach. The G-tags possess high solubility,(More)
Over the past few decades, two-dimensional (2D) and layered materials have emerged as new fields. Due to the zero-band-gap nature of graphene and the low photocatalytic performance of MoS2, more advanced semiconducting 2D materials have been prompted. As a result, semiconductor black phosphorus (BP) is a derived cutting-edge post-graphene contender for(More)
It is known that water purified by conventional TiO2 photocatalysts may not be safe enough for drinking, due to the toxicity by tiny existence of TiO2 nanoparticles after water treatment. We herein demonstrate a facile design of a three-dimensional (3D) TiO2 photocatalyst structure with which both the efficiency of purification and the safety level of the(More)
Recently, the appeal of 2D black phosphorus (BP) has been rising due to its unique optical and electronic properties with a tunable band gap (≈0.3-1.5 eV). While numerous research efforts have recently been devoted to nano- and optoelectronic applications of BP, no attention has been paid to promising medical applications. In this article, the preparation(More)
We report highly active visible-light driven nitrogen-doped three-dimensional polycrystalline anatase TiO2 photocatalysts (N-3D TiO2) for environmental and biomedical applications. N-3D TiO2 is synthesized at a low temperature (<90°C) without thermal treatment via a modified hydrothermal process (HP) and ultrasound irradiation (UI). The N-3D TiO2 is(More)
Owing to the possibilities of achieving high theoretical energy density and gravimetric capacity, sulfur has been considered as a promising cathode material for rechargeable lithium batteries. However, sulfur shows rapid capacity fading due to the irreversible loss of soluble polysulfides and the decrease in active sites needed for conducting agents.(More)
