Fluorescent carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) were synthesized by laser irradiation of a suspension of carbon powders in organic solvent. The surface modification on the CNPs was fulfilled simultaneously with the formation of the CNPs, and tunable light emission could be generated by selecting appropriate solvents. The origin of the luminescence was attributed to carboxylate ligands on the surface of the CNPs.
