The application of nanocarbons as useful scaffolds for the production of a wide range of catalytic systems is an ever-growing field as witnessed by the huge amount of research on this topic. Both covalent and non-covalent modifications of nanocarbons represent the main routes to gain access to hybrid nanostructured catalysts. In this chapter the attention will be focused on nanocarbons, namely, fullerene, nanotubes, and graphene, employed for catalytic purposes covering both organocatalytic and metal-based (metal nanoparticles, organometallic complexes) reactions, whereas simple physical mixtures of nanocarbons and metal nanoparticles as well as examples dealing with electrocatalysis or photocatalysis are out of the scope of the present chapter. Because of the large number of publications in this field, we dealt some recent examples that represent a short overview on this topic that are not meant to be exhaustive but merely representatives of the subject.
