Carbon dots have been also detected in carbonized human hairs or medical plants of traditional Chinese medicine. The physicians have confirmed that these carbon dots at least help stop bleeding.

Endogenous Fluorescence Carbon Dots Derived from Food Items

Graphical Abstract

Public Summary


í˝ Endogenous fluorescence carbon dots (CDs) derived from food items are ultrasmall nanoparticles with sizes below 10 nm, which typically contain carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and/or nitrogen. The most significant features of CDs are strong and tunable fluorescence.

í˝ Currently, the universal presence of CDs in food items has been proved. The formation of these endogenous food-borne CDs could be attributed to the complex reaction among a variety of food mponents during cooking process.

í˝ The contact of these endogenous food-borne CDs is very frequent in our daily life. Therefore, our knowledge about the CDs is still in its infancy and more attention should be paid to the food-borne CDs owing to their uncertainty to human health.

í˝ Primary results demonstrated that these food-borne CDs could accumulate in various organs and induce potential effects of the health. However, the concern of the long-term safety of food-borne CDs has not been addressed. Further research efforts should be focused on the chronic effects of these endogenous food-borne CDs.
