Interactions between carbon nanomaterials, including carbon dots, fullerene, carbon nanotube, graphene, and graphene oxide, and biomolecules play an important role in the field of nanobiotechnology. Due to the unique properties of carbon nanomaterials and the magnificent features of their colloids, it shows high potential in fibrillation inhibition, high sensitivity sensor fabrication, bioimaging, drug delivery, and other areas. Hereby, we will go over different families of carbon nanomaterials regarding to the interaction between carbon nanomaterials and biomolecules at the interface, and their applications will be reviewed as well.
