Carbon dots are nano-sized photoluminescence materials which have good biocompatibility and low cytotoxicity, while the previously synthesized carbon dots lack tumor targeting capability and therapy function so that it cannot achieve the purpose of diagnosis and treatment. Herein, a new kind of multi-functional carbon dots (GFCDs) is promising to be applied in tumor cells imaging and clinical targeted therapy. Gallic acid (GA) was used as the carbon resource and antitumor active molecule, folic acid (FA) was used as the nitrogen resource and tumor targeting molecule, and citric acid monohydrate (CA) was used as the auxiliary carbon source. Multi-functional GACDs were synthesized by a simple one-step microwave-assisted procedure and analyzed with UV - vis spectrophotometer, fourier transform infrared spectrometer, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectrometer. Results show that the diameter of GFCDs is about 3 nm. And GFCDs are pale-yellow under natural light which turn blue under 360 nm UV lamp. Besides ester bond is the connecting mode between functional molecules. In addition, the results of in vitro cell imaging experiments and in vivo antitumor experiments demonstrate the targeting imaging and antitumor abilities towards Hela cells. The synthesis route and properties of GFCDs.
