Dye-encapsulated single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were employed for the construction of a coaxial three-component dye/SWCNT/C60 heterojunction. Despite the larger diameter (∼1.4 nm) of the SWCNTs relative to that set by Flavel's rule (0.95 nm), the photoinduced electron transfer from dye-encapsulated SWCNTs to C60 proceeded smoothly, resulting in the photosensitized evolution of H2 from H2O using a ferrocenyl-based photosensitizer, which was confirmed by the action spectra.

Enhanced Light-Driven Hydrogen-Production Activity Induced by Accelerated Interfacial Charge Transfer in Donor-Acceptor Conjugated Polymers/TiO2 Hybrid.
The matched energy levels between polymer BFB and TiO2 make them form BFB-TiO2 composites with moderate photocatalytic H2 evolution rate (HER), and based on an intermolecular interaction mechanism, more suitable D-A conjugated polymers with anchoring groups could be designed to couple with other semiconductors for enhancing photocatalyst activity.
