Abstract: Carbon quantum dots (CDs) have good optical properties with bright and broad photoluminescence, tunable excitation and emission spectra. The preparation method of CDs is simple, mainly including bottom-up and up-down methods by using cheap raw materials. CDs are environmental friendly, non/low toxic, and have rich functional groups on their surface that can be easily modified and decorated for the specific applications. CDs have potential applications in environmental detection, promoting plant growth, chemical/bio-sensing, biological/live imaging, and nanomedicine. Noble metal nanoparticles, which are with excellent plasmon resonance property, large two-photon absorption cross section, and photothermal conversion effect, can be used to enhance weak fluorophores and improve therapy efficacy. The surface of metal nanoparticles is also modifiable, such as decorating a mesoporous or polymer layer onto the metal core to expand the applications. Major applications include detection, cell/live imaging, drug delivery, therapy, etc.
