The interest in the use of sensoring strategies using semiconductor quantum dots has been exponentially increased. During the last decades, several quantum dots of different compositions have extensively been designed for many sensoring developments. Due to their excellent properties, the use of quantum dots and their surface modification can be versatile in the sensor community. This review article describes the recent progress of the chemical and biochemical sensoring strategies using different compositions and new generations of quantum dots, carbon based quantum dots, and the challenges and opportunities they offer.

Keywords: Analytical applications, chemical sensors, quantum dots, sensoring strategies.
