Insertion of SWNT with halogens (iodine) improves the SWNT conductivity by charge transfer. Our works by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (EXAFS) in collaboration with the beamline BM29 at the ESRF synchrotron investigated the poly-iodides structure inside the nanotube (figure 1) and evidenced the presence of mainly disordered I5- chains. More recent investigations carried out by Raman and X-ray absorption spectroscopy at SLS suggest a strong modification of the charge transfer on the poly iodides chains under high pressure ( 8 GPa). Raman results could even be interpreted by considering a transformation of I5- chains into I3- chains under pressure.
