Double wall carbon nanotubes are noncovalently functionalized with redox protein and such assembly is used for construction of electrochemical binder-less glucose biosensor. Redox protein glucose oxidase performs as biorecognition element and double wall carbon nanotubes act both as immobilization platform for redox enzyme and as signal transducer. The double carbon nanotubes are characterized by cyclic voltammetry and specific surface area measurements; the redox protein noncovalently functionalized double wall carbon nanotubes are characterized in detail by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, amperometry, and transmission electron microscopy.
