Abstract

This chapter outlines the unique electrochemical properties of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) as a novel carbonaceous material. Methods of electrode preparation using CNTs to modify some commonly used electrodes and functionalization of CNTs have been considered and discussed in detail. Further, the prospective applications of CNTs in electrochemical sensors for the detection of micro-to macro-scale molecules highlighting the potential of the material in achieving ultra-sensitivity, specificity, faster response times, stability and reproducibility have been taken into consideration for the enrichment of reader’s knowledge.

Keywords:

Carbon Nanotubes, Electrochemical, Electrodes, Functionalization, Sensing.
