472319 Invited Presentation: Carbonaceous Nanoparticles and Their Interactions with Biological Cells
In this work we report on the interactions of carbon-based nanomaterials (both from combustion and synthetic sources) with biological cells, using atomistic simulations. As engineered nanomaterials, we will focus on carbonaceous quantum dots, which have recently emerged and ignited tremendous research interest. Their favorable characteristics include size- and wavelength-dependent luminescence, resistance to photobleaching, bio-conjugation, and functionalization to produce chiral nanostructures. Carbon-based quantum dots show promise in areas such optoelectronics, catalysis, bioanalysis and drug delivery.
