Abstract

Photoinduced hole transfer from PbS quantum dots (QDs) to aminoferrocene only occurs if the ligand shell of the QD allows aminoferrocene to gain direct access to the inorganic core of the QD; the permeability of the ligand shell is therefore more important than its conductivity in determining the probability of interfacial charge transfer.
