What is it about?
Activated carbon nanodots functionalized with acid anhydride groups (AA-CNDs) are prepared by the one-pot water-free green thermolysis of citric acid. As a proof of concept of their capabilities as appealing and versatile platforms for accessing engineering nanoconstructs, the as-prepared AA-CNDs have been reacted to yield clickable CNDs

Why is it important?
Our work is important because taking advantage of the intrinsic activation of acid anhydrides we expand the current toolbox of covalent grafting methodologies for surface engineering of CNDs. We demonstrate that AA-CNDs are versatile platforms for accessing functional nanoconstructs.
