Carbon dots have received great attention as a result of the favorable optical properties these nanoparticles possess. While much work has been done toward enhancing the optical properties, little investigation has been done on the materialistic properties of these nontoxic nanoparticles. Herein, a simple one-pot procedure for producing a highly viscous, thixotropic carbon dot gel material is presented. The carbon dots possess tunable emissions that are excitation-wavelength dependent and are an ideally viscous material.
