The use of heat treated carbon nanofibers, known as carbon nanochips (CNCs) for the studies of the direct electrochemistry and electrocatalytic properties of heme proteins, is demonstrated. A glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was modified with CNCs, and hemoglobin (Hb) was immobilized on the modified electrode surface by casting a film of Hb. Nafion was employed to fix the CNCs and Hb tightly on the surface of the GCE. The modified electrode was characterized by scanning electron microscopy… CONTINUE READING
