Shining treasure: Like treasure safeguarded in a chest, a tris-hexafluoro acetylacetonate EuIII complex was encapsulated inside MWCNTs to preserve its luminescent output (see figure). These structures could open the way to novel luminescent hybrid materials with potential applications in biological and materials sciences.
