  • Abstract
  • References
The two-dimensional quantum dots (2D-QDs) have been developed significantly in the past decades. The 2D-QDs could be used in bioimaging, biosensing, drug/gene delivery, and photodynamic/photothermal therapy. The potential applications in biology receive increasing attention, which makes them the novel and emerging candidates in biomaterial research fields. In this context, we discuss a variety of 2D-QDs with different physical and chemical properties. We focuse on the latest synthesis progress and recent applications in biotechnological, and biomedical applications of the 2D-QDs and we also evaluate the challenges and prospects in this field.
