Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

Site-selective functionalization of nano- or macroscopic segments of carbon nanotubes is accomplished using focused ion beams followed by site-selective derivatization of the segments with nanostructures and biomolecules (see Figure). Such hybrid nanostructures open up new possibilities for nanoscale addressing, fingerprinting, recognition, and separation.
