Fullerenic materials such as C60, C70, C84 and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) are of significant interest for a large range of electronic applications such as organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices, transistors, sensors and transparent conducting films.? Controlled premixed combustion has been developed as a reliable, scalable process for their large scale manufacture and demonstrated successfully in pilot plants.? Depending on the operating conditions either fullerenes (C60, C70, … C84, …) or SWCNT are formed selectively.? Chemical functionalizing allows tailoring solubility in different solvents and electronic properties.? The use of fullerene derivatives as electron acceptors in OPV devices is currently approaching commercialization while transistor applications are not too far behind.? Efficient purification methods for SWCNT have been developed.? Their further processing including chemical functionalization and dispersion will be discussed.? The detailed characterization of combustion-based SWCNT using a large range of techniques will be described along with their key application areas.
