Rational covalent functionalization of single-walledcarbon nanotube (SWNT) surfaces can be used to carefully manipulate properties of SWNTs and enhance their performance in a wide range of diverse applications. In this review, we update on a number of diverse chemical strategies for productively functionalizing SWNTs at their ends, defect sites, and sidewalls. Potential applications in the fields of polymer composites and biological devices are also discussed.
