A broad range of carbonaceous nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and graphene oxide, is currently discussed in literature for in vivo applications, such as photothermal therapy and drug delivery. This is due to the large variety of adjustable material properties including NIR absorbance or enhanced drug loading capacity, respectively. However, for biomedical applications the applied nanomaterials must fulfill certain requirements: (i) low toxicity (ii) rapid excretion, (iii) high solubility in the injection medium and in the body fluids, (iv) stability and biocompatibility under physiological conditions, (v) knowledge about the regions in the body where the nanomaterials will accumulate and (vi) low cost.
