We show the crossing of small sized water soluble fluorescent carbon nano onion (wsCNO) through the blood brain barrier (BBB) in the Cerebral Autosomal-Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) murine model as well as in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) induced mice. It is readily excreted from the body after a few days suggesting its possible use as cargo in drug delivery.
