Organometallic compounds inside single-walled carbon nanotubes can drastically change their properties. Using biocompatible standardized suspensions of pristine, opened, and ferrocene-filled nanotubes, a selective enhancement of the photoluminescence and optical absorption up to a factor of three is observed. This is attributed to a local electron charge transfer from the encapsulated molecules.
