Electronic and optical properties of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) are directly associated with their geometrical structures which are uniquely specified by a pair of chiral index (n, m). Hence, determination of chirality of isolated or bundled SWCNTs is an important task to purify, identify, separate and sort nanotubes immediately after their synthesis. Knowing the chirality is also important for many applications of SWCNTs in device level so as to select the specific SWCNT with required electronic and optical properties suitable for that application. In this work, a review is presented on main existing theoretical and experimental methods for determination of chirality of SWCNTs. This review will give a summary of various new and old techniques proposed by different researchers for chirality assignment of metallic and semiconducting SWCNTs, including some most recent works. This review will also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique for chirality assignment and will give an overall comparison between them.
