Exo- and etidohedral funetionalization of single wall carbon namxubcs if discussed from die point of view of IR and Raman spectroscopy. The presented examples are for carboxy-SWCNT and C60@SWCNT systems. The carlxm groups arc mcu stable connect to the tube. The process of functionafeation creates defects on the tubes which can not be recovered at the temperatures up to 800°C whereas the functional groups can he split off In the ease of Cn60@SWCNT Raman spectroscopy allows to determine the concentration of fullcrene molecules in the tubes if the analysis is performed for excitation with various lasers. A calibration table and corresponding correction diagrams are provided.
