The nonlinear electrical characteristic of carbon nanodots (CNDs) has revealed important physical phenomena of charge trapping playing a dominant role in surface interactions. Functional groups on the surface of CNDs attract ambient water molecules which in turn act as charge traps and give rise to electrical hysteresis that plays a dominant role in understanding charge transport in CNDs on surface interactions. Hysteresis in the current- voltage response is further utilized to study the interaction of the CNDs with nitrogen dioxide gas as an external stimuli. The hysteresis area is observed to be dependent on the time of gas interaction with the CNDs, therefore revealing the interaction mechanism of the CNDs with the gas.
