This work aimed to develop stem-derived carbon dots (TCSCD) for cancer cell imaging, free radical scavenging and metal sensing applications. The TCSCDs were synthesized by a simple, one-step, and ecofriendly hydrothermal carbonization method and characterized for their optical properties, morphology, hydrodynamic size, surface functionality, crystallinity, stability, bacterial biocompatibility, cellular imaging, free radical scavenging and metal sensing ability. The TCSCDs exhibited excellent biocompatibility with dose-dependent bioimaging results in melanoma (B16F10) and cervical cancer (SiHa) cell lines. Read More
