The newly formed DNAzyme could oxidize the 4-chloronaphthol 4-CN to produce an insoluble precipitation on the sensor, thus resulting in a local alteration of the conductivity.
Post treatment Applications in bioimaging: As described above, GCDs are certainly viable candidates for cellular imaging. Actually, some CDs really possess PL up-conversion properties.
Furthermore, two- or multi-photon absorption is a common property in carbon-based materials. InYang et al. The injected CNDs in mice diffused relatively slowly with the fluorescence fading about 24 h post-injection. GCDs can be injected into mice via subcutaneous, inter dermal and intravenous injection and can be detected by nm or nm excitation.
The biocompatibility and nontoxic characteristics of GCDs were also demonstrated InTao et al. In vivo fluorescence imaging with GCDs was then demonstrated in mouse experiments, by using various excitation wavelengths, including some in the near-infrared region.
Furthermore, in vivo bio-distribution and toxicology of those GCDs in mice over different periods were studied: The GCDs accumulated selectively in the eye, yolk sac and tail of the zebra fish, and the green emission of CDs could be easily observed.
The application of GCDs in the zebra fish supports the eventual use of CDs in clinical applications as a probe with low toxicity. GCDs can be modified to exploit enhanced properties and diverse functions. Fluorescein, rhodamine B and a-naphthylamine were functionalized onto the dots through EDC condensation.
The fluorescence was improved, while the cytotoxicity decreased. The functionalized GCDs achieved maxi-mum fluorescence intensity when excited at nm, and the peak position was the same as that of the position of CDs. The GCDs entered into human red blood cells RBCsuggesting their potential application in bio-sensing and drug delivery.
Then, folic acid was conjugated onto the dots, and the functionalized GCDs can be utilized for targeting and detecting cancer cells.
The surface functionalization on the dots was further stabilized to achieve probes with high physicochemical and photochemical stabilities. Hyaluronic acid was linked to the carbon dots to improve receptor-mediated endocytosis and specific delivery. These particles showed excellent properties for bioimaging applications.
GCDs are a versatile material formed from a wide range of starting materials and via various synthetic methods. In addition to their excellent photoluminescent properties, their biocompatibility and low toxicity make them ideal candidates for cell imaging.
GCDs will show more advantages in bioapplications after proper functionalization, namely, passivation with polymer, decorating with organic molecules, doping with inorganic salt and hybridization with silica.
Folic acid was also covalently attached to GCDs for specific targeting of human cancer cells. Recently, Karthik et al. In a word, GCDs are novel fluorescent nanomaterials with out-standing fluorescence properties.
They have numerous excellent applications in a variety of fields involving chemical and biological sensing, biological imaging, drug delivery, and photocatalysis, which are greatly promising for the future development.
