Hybrid nanomaterials formed by a single crystal organic nanowire covered by a semiconducting shell are presented. The methodology is fully applicable to π-conjugated small molecules, different inorganic shell compositions, and processable substrates ranging from silicon wafers to polymeric supports. The wave guiding effect of the organic core luminescent emission on the core/shell nanostructures based on metal perylene (MePTCDI) and ZnO is shown.
