Small bodies hold keys to our understanding of the Solar System. By studying these populations we seek the information on the conditions and structure of the primordial and current Solar System, its evolution, and the formation process of the planets. Constraining the surface compisition of small bodies provides us with the ingredients and proportions for this cosmic recipe. I present a taxonomy of visible and near-infrared spectral data based on 371 asteroid spectra. I analyze the photometric colors of 23 Transneptunian Objects and Centaurs, nine of which have never been previously observed, and assign them taxonomic classifications. Futhermore, I interpret the surface composition of three outer Solar System small bodies, Jupiter-coupled object (52872) Okyrhoe, and TNOs (90482) Orcus and (73480) 2002 PN34, by modeling spectroscopic measurements in the visible and near-infrared wavelenght ranges. The spectra reveal varying amounts of H2O ice among these bodies. I present a search for solid ethane, C2H6, on the surfaces of Pluto and Triton, based on near- infrared spectral observations. I model each surface using a radiative transfer model based on Hapke theory (Hapke 1993) with three basic models : without ethane, with pure ethane, and with ethane diluted in nitrogen. While the presence of less than a few percent of ethane cannot be excluded on both bodies, there is no strong detection on either. Finally, I review the current knowledge of the compositional distribution of material in our Solar System, providing the global view of small bodies. I briefly compare the general structure of our Solar System to other imaged debris
