Although semiconductor quantum dots have shown promise as bright fluorescent labels, concerns about their toxicity remain, particularly for biological uses. Now a group of scientists at Clemson University in South Carolina has demonstrated that carbon nanoparticles subjected to an organic surface treatment also shine brightly, potentially making them suitable for applications in biosensing, medical imaging and the construction of novel LEDs. Carbon nanoparticles passivated with organic molecules may be suitable for use as fluorescent labels in biological imaging. The potential of the...Read full article
