Advanced technological uses of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) rely on the production of single length and chirality populations that are currently only available through liquid-phase postprocessing. The current state of the art for measuring dispersion and length populations is documented, and examples are used to demonstrate the desirability of addressing these parameters.
