The synthesis as well as the structural and photophysical properties of porphyrin-double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs) are comprehensively described. By means of absorption and emission spectroscopies, new insights into the electronic communication existing between CNTs and covalently linked porphyrin molecules are unravelled both in solution and in the solid state.
