The scope of this Perspective is to highlight the potential of nanoscale self-ordering/self-assembling nanocarbons - fullerenes, single-wall carbon nanotubes, and graphene - en route toward novel charge transfer hybrids that unify several functions such as light harvesting, charge separation, and, eventually, catalysis. All of the given examples are fully characterized by a broad range of spectroscopic as well as microscopic techniques and, as such, document the success in tuning the electronic structure of functional nanocarbons by means of charge transfer/doping interactions.
