Carbon nanotubes and graphene are outstanding materials of the 21st century with a broad spectrum of potential applications. However, major challenges are faced such as the intrinsically low solubility of these carbon allotropes. A promising approach to overcome this hurdle is non-covalent functionalization, which is summarized in the Progress Report by Backes et al. on p. 2588, with a special focus on the interaction of the carbon nanomaterials with perylene bisimide based surfactants.
