A coaxial nanohybrid consisting of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT), fullerodendron, and SiO2 is created from a bottom-up approach by Yutaka Takaguchi and co-workers and shown to act as a photocatalyst, as reported on page 5750. The SWCNT/fullerodendron/SiO2 coaxial nanohybrid demonstrates highly efficient hydrogen evolution from water upon visible-light irradiation in the presence of methyl viologen, benzyldihydroni-cotinamide, and a colloidal polyvinyl alcohol–Pt.
