In this work we have designed a novel system based on carbon dots prepared from chitosan gel capped with β-cyclodextrin and calixarene-25,26,27,28-tetrol for sensitive and selective detection of fluoride ions in aqueous media. Fluorescent carbon dots prepared from chitosan gel when capped with β-cyclodextrin and calixarene-25,26,27,28-tetrol results… (More)
We have developed a hybrid hydrogel nanocomposite film via conjugation of oxidised carbon dots synthesized from 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid with chitosan. The potential applicability of the film was then successfully tested for the removal of Ca2+ and Mg2+ ions from solution.
We have successfully demonstrated the use of capped carbon dot systems, namely, CDs/ β -cd, CDs/LMH, and CDs/Suc, as fluorescent sensors for the detection of hemin. The capped carbon dot systems showed quenching of PL intensity in the presence of hemin. The minimum detection limit was determined to be ~1 μ M. The PL response with free Fe(II) and Fe(III) was… (More)
Functionalized graphene oxide quantum dots (GOQDs)-poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hybrid hydrogels were prepared using a simple, facile and cost-effective strategy. GOQDs bearing different surface functional groups were introduced as the cross-linking agent into the PVA matrix thereby resulting in gelation. The four different types of hybrid hydrogels were… (More)
