Applications of Carbon Dots in Nanomedicine
Recently, due to low toxicity and superior fluorescence and optical properties, carbon (C) dots have received considerable attention from scientists and technocrats. C-dots are not only used for electronics and optoelectronics but are also utilized for bioimaging, therapeutics and diagnosis, sensing, regenerative medicines, and nanomedicines. Because of their various interesting properties and wide applications, C-dots are extensively studied. This short review describes the different synthetic methodologies, properties, and specifically, nanomedicinal applications of C-dots such as biological imaging, cancer drug delivery, regenerative medicines, and biosensing. The article further sheds light on the fundamental uncertainties regarding the drugs transportation, uptake, and removal from the body through the C-dots. The work also provides an insight on how biomedical research can progress with C-dots and where we perceive the field is moving in the near future.
