The incorporation of functionalised carbon nanodots within a novel low molecular weight salt hydrogel derived from 5-aminosalycilic acid is reported. The carbon dots result in markedly enhanced gelation properties, while inclusion within the hydrophobic gel results in a dramatic fluorescence enhancement for the carbon nanomaterials. The resulting hybrid CD Gels exhibit a useful sensor response for heavy metal ions, particularly Pb2+.
