Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of carbon nanodots has emerged as a promising frontier in materials science, offering diverse applications in analytical techniques and biomedical research. Carbon nanodots exhibit unique optical, electronic, and surface properties, making them particularly attractive for a wide range of scientific studies. The significance of this research area lies in its potential to revolutionize analytical methodologies and advance biomedical technologies. Carbon nanodots, with their tunable properties and biocompatibility, present novel opportunities for diagnostic tools, imaging agents, and therapeutic applications. This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of recent developments in the synthesis, characterization, and application of carbon nanodots. Our goal is to assemble a collection of high-quality articles that delve into the diverse aspects of carbon nanodots, ranging from fundamental studies to practical applications. Potential research areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis methods for and structural characterization of carbon nanodots;
  • Analytical techniques utilizing carbon nanodots for sensing and detection applications;
  • Biomedical applications, including imaging, drug delivery, and theranostics;
  • Theoretical studies exploring the electronic and optical properties of carbon nanodots.

We look forward to receiving your contributions, which will enrich this Special Issue and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in this exciting and rapidly evolving field.
