Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have become one of the most intensely studied nanostructures because of their unique properties. The inherent physical properties of carbon nanotubes make them ideal supports for metal nanoparticles. The use of electrodeposition to modify SWNTs in order to facilitate applications in areas related to catalysis and sensing is presented in this manuscript. Preparation of raw SWNT material for electrochemical experiments involves various mild or oxidative… CONTINUE READING
