  Abstract:  The use of Microwave-Assisted Hydrothermal (MAH) production of carbon-based nanomaterials is frequent, but in practice the most common employed equipments are domestic microwave or digestion ovens. Here we investigate the synthesis of Carbon Nanoparticles (CNs) using a dedicated microwave reaction system (Monowave 300 from Anton Paar), aiming to define the operational parameters of the system in order to optimize the synthesis procedure. The optical properties of synthesized CNs were analyzed by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, steady-state and time-domain photoluminescence measurements while their size and morphology were characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM).

Keywords: Carbon nanoparticles, photoluminescence, microwave.
