- We present an in-depth investigation regarding the electron-accepting nature of pressure-synthesized carbon nanodots (pCNDs) in combination with porphyrins as excited-state electron donors. To this end, electrostatic attractions involving negative charges, which are present on the pCND surface, are essential to govern the hybrid assembly, on one hand, and charge separation, on the other hand.
