Carbon dots (CDs), an emerging category of carbon nanomaterials, have bright destiny in a vast diversity of engineering areas due to their great variety in design, arrangement, and characteristics. Their possible implementations have recently traversed from electrochemical energy storage (EES), fluorescent probing, and catalysis, particularly as materials into the critical elements of the electrochemical system. Herein, the current investigation based upon the preface of CDs in batteries, supercapacitors, hydrogen/oxygen evolution reaction, oxygen reduction reaction, electromagnetic interference shielding, and solar-assisted energy generation used as electrode materials integrated with an active substance as an auxiliary mechanism is shown. Different aspects conferred upon selected illustrations outline the electrochemical activity, and eventually, current issues and future viewpoints are recollected toward the following optimization method of electrode substances. This review article is anticipated to demand broad attention within active CD materials and encourage the growth of high-performance EES systems.
