A group of scientists from International Technology Centre in Releigh, US reported a successful synthesis of luminescent carbon nanostructures from graphite intercolation compoungs using graphite, HOPG and onion-like carbon as starting materials. To achieve this goal, scientists oxidized different carbon materials in a H2SO4:HNO3 mixture for different times and at different temperatures. Further separation of the obtained material into fractions of different sizes yielded a series of relatively monodisperse nanoparticles exhibiting luminescence from blue to orange depending on the particles’ sizes. This work opens new possibilities in the field of luminescent non-toxic nanomaterials. More details on this work can be found in the publication in The Journal of Physical Chemisty C at
