Abstract

By embedding single wall carbon nanotubes in a mesoporous silica matrix (SWNT@SiO2) the photochemical properties have been measured upon laser excitation at 266 nm; the SWNT@SiO2 exhibits long-lived emission (λem = 400 nm, τ = 0.95 μs), transient absorption (λmax = 390 nm, τ = 11 μs) and is able to generate singlet oxygen in D2O.
