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.
