In this work, the electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole in the presence of H3PMo12O40 onto the screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCE) modified with double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) is reported. The influence of the pyrrole and H3PMo12O40 concentration as well as a scan rate used to recording of cyclic voltammograms that describe the electrochemical synthesis of polypyrrole (PPY) onto the DWNTs surface is assessed. Using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) we demonstrate that the electrosynthesis of PPY doped with H3PMo12O40 heteropolyanions (PPY-PMo12) results in the generation of a globular morphology. Considering the variations induced of DWNTs in the IR and Raman spectra of PPY doped with H3PMo12O40 heteropolyanions, a functionalization process of carbon nanotubes with macromolecular compound is invoked. According to SEM investigations, DWNTs allow the realization of connections between the globular structures of the macromolecular compound. The changes induced of folic acid (FA) during the oxidation-reduction processes at the interface of the DWNTs functionalized with PPY doped with H3PMo12O40 heteropolyanions (SPCE-DWNT/PPY-PMo12) with electrolyte solution are reported.
