We report on the charge transfer in intercalated SWCNT and C60 peapods. Differences between n-doping (K-intercalation) and p-doping (FeCl 3-intercalation) are discussed. For the peapods a competition between a charge transfer to the SWCNT pods and one to the C60 peas is observed. At low intercalation levels the charge transfer is predominantly to the SWCNTs. In addition at high levels of potassium intercalation the C 60 pods are charged up to C606- and form a metallic one dimensional polymer.
