The combination of an Ayurvedic wisdom and nanotechnology may help us to resolve the complex healthcare challenges. A facile and economical one-pot hydrothermal synthesis method has been adopted for preparing a blue fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) with a quantum yield of 15.10% from an Ayurvedic medicinal plant Andrographis paniculata (AP). The Andrographis paniculata derived CDs (AAPCDs) were then characterized using different techniques. Through High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC…
