Carbon nanotubes, even after extensive posttreatment, contain metallic impurities which may produce misleading results, giving rise to false claims of the properties of carbon nanotubes. To overcome this, we report on high-purity catalyst-free multiwalled carbon nanotubes which have been explored with transmission electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron(More)
A novel method for the detection of nitrate was developed using simplified nitrate reductase (SNaR) that was produced by genetic recombination techniques. The SNaR consists of the fragments of the Mo-molybdopterin (MO-MPT) binding site and nitrate reduction active site and has high activity for nitrate reduction. The method is based on a unique combination(More)
A Nafion film loaded with novel catalyst-free multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) was used to modify a glassy carbon (GC) electrode to detect trace concentrations of metal ions, with europium ion (Eu(3+)) as a model. The interaction between the sidewalls of MWCNTs and the hydrophobic backbone of Nafion allows the MWCNTs to be dispersed in Nafion, which(More)
Metal catalyst free carbon nanotube (MCFCNT) whiskers were first used as an electrode modification material on a gold electrode surface for zinc voltammetric measurements. A composite film of Nafion and MCFCNT whiskers was applied to a gold electrode surface to form a mechanically stable sensor. The sensor was then used for zinc detection in both acetate(More)
Anodic stripping voltammetry (ASV) and cathodic stripping voltammetry (CSV) were used to determine Mn concentration using metal catalyst free carbon nanotube (MCFCNT) electrodes and square wave stripping voltammetry (SWSV). The MCFCNTs are synthesized using a Carbo Thermal Carbide Conversion method which results in a material that does not contain residual(More)
