On Saturday, August 21, 2021, the 23rd Comparative Glycomics Research Meeting was held at the Training Center of Sail Training Ship NIPPON MARU (Yokohama, Japan). A total of 50 participants onsite and online, including participants from Japan, the United States of America, Belgium, and China, were connected for eight presentations and discussions.
Natural product-derived carbon dots (CDs) have been widely studied as environmentally friendly materials for various applications, such as for bioimaging and as sensors, catalysts, and solar cells. Electroluminescence (EL) is one of the most desirable characteristic of CDs for optical devices in display and lighting applications.
Herein, we present the rapid synthesis of mono-dispersed carbon quantum dots (C-QDs) via a single-step microwave plasma-enhanced decomposition (MPED) process. Highly-crystalline C-QDs were synthesized in a matter of 5 min using the fenugreek seeds as a sustainable carbon source. It is the first report, to the best of our knowledge, where C-QDs were synthesized using MPED via natural carbon precursor. Synthesis of C-QDs requires no external temperature other than hydrogen (H2) plasma. Plasma containing the high-energy electrons and activated hydrogen ions predominantly provide the required energy directly into the reaction volume, thus maximizing the atom economy.
