Abstract

We report a simple method for synthesizing carbon quantum dot (CQD) decorated leaf-like CuO nanosheets. The CQDs not only relay to improve the dispersion of CuO but also offer higher UV-shielding properties. Excellent UV-shielding properties were witnessed in a polymer film containing 0.5 wt% of CQD/CuO nanocomposites.
