This paper reviews techniques currently available for size- and shape-selective purification of nanoscopic objects. The methods discussed range from variants of familiar chromatographic, centrifugation, or filtration techniques, to purification schemes deriving from nanoscale-specific phenomena, including shape-selective reactivity, or propensity to form organized superstructures.
