Trouble producing blue/true yellow quantum dots

Hi All,

I have been experimenting with making carbon quantum dots via low temp methods and was wondering if anyone had any idea why i am struggling to produce blue as it seems to be the most prevalent, so far i have made green and more green with one yellow/brown batch. So far i have used between 0.7 to 1.5g of sucrose and added varying amounts of NaOH and HCl to make basic and acidic. paper inspiration followed the blue but made green

Any help welcome,


Green QD's so far
