Abstract: Functionalisation of carbon nanohorns (CNHs), by covalent bonding or non-covalent supramolecular interacting organic moieties, overcomes insolubility problems and enhances manipulation and processibility. The present review paper summarises our recent accomplishments in the field of chemical modification of CNHs together with various critical and important aspects related to their synthesis, morphology, properties and applications. Moreover, the design and preparation of some novel hybrid materials consisting of CNHs and electron donors will be presented.
