Natural products have contributed conspicuously to the development of innovative nanomedicines. Hence, the interface between nanomaterial science and plant natural products may bestow comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for tackling diseases such as cancer and neurological disorders. Natural product-derived carbon dots (NPdCDs) have revealed noteworthy attributes in the fields of cancer theranostics, microbial imaging, drug sensing and drug delivery. As plants consist of a…

Carbon dots from an immunomodulatory plant for cancer cell imaging, free radical scavenging and metal sensing applications.
TLDR
The TCSCDs exhibited excellent biocompatibility with dose-dependent bioimaging results in melanoma (B16F10) and cervical cancer (SiHa) cell lines and exerted good free radical scavenging, Fe3+ sensing, bacterial biOCompatibility, photostability, colloidal dispersion stability and thermal stability.
Tinospora cordifolia Leaves Derived Carbon dots for Cancer Cell Bioimaging, Free radical Scavenging, and Fe3+ Sensing Applications.
TLDR
The fabrication of Tinospora cordifolia leaves-derived carbon dots (TCLCDs) from aqueous extract of leaves as carbon source via simple, environmentally friendly, hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) technique showed excellent cellular biocompatibility with dose-dependent bioimaging results in melanoma (B16F10) and cervical cancer (SiHa) cell lines.

Sub-nanometer-sized carbon nanoparticle shows higher biocompatibility to DNA than nanometer-sized nanoparticles
TLDR
This work has studied how the ultra-small-sized C28 nanoparticles bind to and regulate the structure of double stranded (dsDNA) by molecular dynamics simulations and reveals a fact that the nanomaterials toxicity is highly correlated to their size where sub-nanometer sized materials may have higher biocompatibility.
