A new type of composite material based on carbon nanotubes and an aqueous sol-gel process has been developed. The electrochemical characteristics of these composites were investigated and compared to composites made with an alkoxy silane sol-gel process. The use of carbon nanotubes, as the conductive part of the composite, facilitated fast electron transfer rates. The feasibility of this type of composite for the development of biosensors was demonstrated using l-amino acid oxidase. The… CONTINUE READING
