The properties at interfaces play important roles in biology and electronics. In the last 20 years, new carbon allotropes, like carbon nanotubes, have emerged as novel suitable substrates for the production of derivatives with wide range of technological applications. Since then, a great attention has been drawn in the study of the biological and technological properties of these novel allotropes at interfaces. Among the plethora of chemical reactions adopted to improve the properties of these nanostructured carbon species, the one employing supramolecular approaches have rapidly increased during the last years. In this chapter we will review the supramolecular approaches aimed at the functionalization of these carbon-based nanostructures focusing on their properties and applicative uses as self-organized materials at interfaces.
