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 (lambda em = 400 nm, tau = 0.95 microsecond), transient absorption (lambda max = 390 nm, tau = 11 microseconds) and is able to generate singlet oxygen in D2O.
