42_35/2003Carbon Nanotubes are currently a subject of particular interest in materials chemistry. In the Communication by D. M. Guldi, F. Paolucci, M. Prato, and co-workers on page 4206 ff., the preparation of a single-wall nanotube–ferrocene (SWNT–Fc) nanohybrid is described. Photoinduced electron transfer gives rise to a long-lived charge-separated state (SWNT.−–Fc.+); the radical anionic form of the nanotube has been detected by laser flash photolysis.
