Single top topologies are exploited for studies of top quark properties. This includes the first measurement of single top polarization in the t-channel production mode in pp collisions, which directly confirms the V-A nature of the tWb production vertex. W-helicity fractions are measured in the phase space sampled by a selection optimized for t-channel single top production, orthogonal to the ttbar final states used in traditional measurements of these properties. Anomalous couplings of the top quark are searched in t-channel single top production with a NN-based analysis.
