(a) Synthesis of different sizes of hybrid MoS2 NDTs using hydrothermal method by the incorporation of KNa-tartrate as an intercalant. (b) Mechanism of the hybrid NDTs showing dissociation of intercalant into carbon nanodots and edges of MoS2 is broken into small sizes; resulting carbon and oxygen from intercalant bonded with the Mo species to produced hybrid structure of MoS2 nanodots. (c) Enhancement of magnitude and red shifting in photoluminescence spectra. (d) MoS2 NDTs solution (2.45nm average size) exhibits a blue fluorescence under the irradiation by a 365 nm UV light, further XPS reveals the Mo-C bond formation in hybrid NDTs.

Keywords: 2D-based nanomaterials, Solvothermal process, MoS2 nanodots, PL enhancement, Temperature-dependent particle size
