A review. The discovery of carbon nanotubes has had a profound impact on many areas of science and technol., not least that of electroanal. The properties and applications of carbon nanotubes themselves were well reviewed in the literature and a no. of reviews with an electrochem. emphasis were published. However, the modification of carbon nanotubes has recently been the focus of much research, primarily to improve their soly. in various solvents. Yet modified carbon nanotube electrodes also allow the electrochemist to tailor the properties of the carbon nanotubes, or the electrode surface to impart desired properties such as enhanced sensing capabilities. In this review it is attempted to comprehensively cover the different chem. and electrochem. modification strategies and research carried out using modified carbon nanotubes for electroanal. and bioanal. applications. Furthermore it is also discussed the use of modified carbon nanotubes in electrocatalysis and biocatalysis from an anal. aspect, as well as seeking to dispel some of the myths surrounding the electrocatalytic properties of carbon nanotubes.
