Carbonaceous quantum dots (CQDs), relatively small carbon nanoparticles (<10 nm in size), have sparked the attention over the last few decades for their potential as a promising resource in various fields, such as biomedical, solar cells, sensors, water treatment, energy generation storage because of their benign, abundant, low preparation costs, small size, non-hazardous nature, high biocompatibility, high water solubility and effective alteration nature. Numerous applications in optronics, catalysis, and sensing are made possible by the excellent electronic characteristics of CQDs as electron acceptors and donors that cause photocatalytic activity and electrochemical luminosity. This feature series aims to assess the current status of CQDs by discussing the literature in this field and deliberate the basics, applicability and advancements in the field of CQDs in both scientific and technology circles.

Keywords: Biocompatibility, Carbonaceous quantum dots, Carbon dots, Carbon nanoparticles.
