    Semiconductor colloidal quantum dot/organic molecule nanohybrids are gaining momentum due to the relative ease with which an efficient photoinduced charge transfer in the desired direction can be achieved between the dot and the molecule. At the same time analysis of the experimental studies of such systems, and in particular transient absorption spectroscopy data, is a challenging task because of the statistical nature of hybrid formation and the complex kinetics of the photoreactions. This Minireview aims to find common ground for comparing the photoinduced charge-separation reactions in quantum dot/organic molecule hybrids. It also discusses a common set of parameters which would help to compare different quantum dot/molecule hybrids as well as progress in developing design principles to achieve controllable photoinduced charge separation in such hybrids.
