Abstract
In this review, we discuss state-of-the-art sensing methods for the detection of chemical and biological molecules, using a well-known and much studied material, carbon nanotubes, as the hybrid materials for fabrication assemblies. CNTs possesses a wide range of unique characteristics, including intriguing physical properties, higher aspect ratios, larger surface area, better chemical and thermal stability, and electronic and optical properties. The objective of this review is to present an overview of the synthetic strategies and their applications in both amperometric sensors and SPME fiber coatings. These methods are fast, sensitive, cheap and suitable for in-situ monitoring. We comprehensively review the mechanisms, the principles and the performances of chemical sensors and biosensors available in the literature.
