Photoactive inorganic–organic nanohybrids are constructed from CdTe quantum dots (QDs) and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). In their Communication on page 6425 ff. D. M. Guldi and co-workers report that the introduction of surface stabilizers to QDs facilitates both the covalent attachment of a pyrene group and the anchoring onto the SWNTs. Complementary luminescence and ultrafast transient absorption analyses indicate the formation of a charge-separated state; this paves the way for the successful integration into photovoltaic devices.
