Electrochemical Behaviors of Double-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Encapsulating Ferrocene
Electrochemical properties of a novel nanohybrid material, ferrocene-filled double-walled carbon nanotubes ([email protected]), have been successfully investigated for the first time by preparing different kinds of [email protected] modified glassy carbon electrodes. One pair of surface-confined redox waves corresponding to the couple of Fc/Fc+ is obtained, indicating Fc encapsulated in DWNTs retains electrochemical activity. Significantly differing from those of ferrocene-filled single-walled carbon nanotubes ([email protected]), [email protected] shows a specific electrochemical behavior, typically exhibiting thin-layer electrochemical characteristics at low scan rates, whereas diffusion-confined characteristics at high scan rates. The results indicate that the novel nanohybrid material possessing excellent electrochemical properties may have possible applications in constructing specific chemical and biological sensors.
