A comprehensive chemical experiment is introduced in the paper, including the synthesis, characterization of carbon quantum dots and the fluorescence detection of biothiol. This experiment not only makes students understand the hot spots in the frontier of science, but also enables students to master the structures, principles and operational skills of UV-Vis and fluorescence spectrometers, which are helpful for the innovative consciousness and comprehensive application ability training.

Key words: Carbon quantum dot, Biothiol, Fluorescence detection, Comprehensive experiment
