Microwave-Assisted Green Synthesis of Carbon Quantum Dots Derived from Calotropis Gigantea as a Fluorescent Probe for Bioimaging.

In this work, an eco-friendly, cost-effective, and convenient method for synthesizing biocompatible fluorescent quantum dots from the leaf extract of the medicinal plant Calotropis gigantea, also known as crown flower, has been demonstrated. The size of the as-synthesized CQDs varied from 2. 7 to 10. 4 nm, with a significant proportion of sp 2 and sp 3 carbon groups identified by nuclear magnetic resonance analysis. In this respect, as-synthesized CQDs have demonstrated excellent fluorescent staining results in this research and can be used as a useful probe for optical and bio-imaging of bacteria, fungi, and plant cells.
