Abstract

Highly luminescent, water-soluble and biocompatible Carbon Quantum Dots (aqCQDs) were prepared by encapsulating the parent hydrophobic CQDs in an amphiphilic polymer. The resulting aqCQDs were non-toxic to living cells, and were found to cross the cell membrane and localise primarily in the cytosol.
