Pyridine-boryl (py-boryl) radicals serve as efficient electron-doping reagents for single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). The doping mechanism comprises electron transfer from the py-boryl radical to the SWCNT. The formation of a stable py-boryl cation is essential for efficient doping; the captodative effect of the py-boryl cation is important to this process.
