Semiconductor organic–inorganic nanocom-posites crafted by placing conjugated polymers in intimate contact with nanocrystals markedly promote the dispersion of nanocrystals within the conjugated polymer matrix and facilitate the photoinduced charge transfer between them. On page 4353, Z. Lin and L. Zhao review recent developments in conjugated polymer–nanocrystal nanocomposites, focusing on viable preparative strategies for these semiconductor nanocompos-ites and their photovoltaic performance in hybrid solar cells.
