As a novel carbon allotrope, carbon quantum dots (CQDs) have been investigated in
various fields, including photocatalysis, bioimaging, optoelectronics, energy and
photovoltaic devices, biosensing, and drug delivery owing to their unique optical and
electronic properties. In particular, CQDs’ excellent sunlight harvesting ability, tunable
photoluminescence (PL), up-conversion photoluminescence (UCPL), and efficient photoexcited
electron transfer have enabled their applications in photocatalysis. This work
focuses on the recent progress on CQDs-related materials’ synthesis, properties, and
applications in photocatalysis.
