Quantum dots are inorganic semiconductor crystal of nanometer size which having distinctive conductive property depend on its size & shape. After administration of quantum dots parentally they identify target and bound them. Also quantum dots having light emitting property depend on size & shape. Quantum dots are prepared by chemical synthesis method include both organic & water phase synthesis & also by top- bottom approach. Tumor cell targeting & detection of pathogen & toxin are the main application of quantum dots & also in targeting drug delivery system. This review provides the overview of method of preparation of quantum dots & its biological application.

Keywords: Quantum dot, targeting drug delivery, biological application
