Abstract

original image

Novel organic-inorganic nanocomposites synthesized by directly grafting end-functionalized conjugated polymers onto quantum rods with a complementary functional group through a robust Heck coupling is reported on page 2844 by Zhiqun Lin and co-workers. This is a promising method to craft semiconductor anisotropic nanocomposites for use in solar cells.
