Along with its outstanding effects, Gemcitabine has some side effects, which may cause suffering to patients. Herein we developed, a novel but simple method for the selective and sensitive quantitative determination of Gemcitabine drug based upon measuring the fluorescence quenching of functionalized Au doped quantum dots (QDs) in biological samples. The TGA capped Au doped CdTe quantum dot...
