Abstract

Direct incorporation of a Pt(ii) complex into the shell of SWCNT/fullerodendron coaxial nanohybrids produces a new coaxial nanowire, SWCNT/fullerodendron/Pt(ii), that shows efficient photocatalytic activity for hydrogen evolution from water (Φ = 0.16 upon irradiation at 450 ± 5 nm) without any aid of electron relay such as methyl viologen.
