Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a nanostructure which will have a length-to-diameter quantitative relation bigger than 1,000,000. Techniques are developed to supply nanotubes in sizeable quantities, together with arc discharge, optical device ablation, and chemical vapor deposition. Developments within the past few years have illustrated the possibly revolutionizing impact of nanomaterials, particularly in medical specialty imaging, drug delivery, biosensing, and also the style of practical nanocomposites. Strategies to effectively interface proteins with nanomaterials for realizing these applications still evolve. The high surface-to-volume quantitative relation offered by nanoparticles resulted within the concentration of the immobilized entity being significantly beyond that afforded by different materials. There has conjointly been AN increasing interest in understanding the influence of nanomaterials on the structure and performance of proteins. varied immobilization strategies are developed, and particularly, specific attachment of enzymes on carbon nanotubes has been a crucial focus of attention. With the growing attention paid to cascade catalyst reaction, it’s attainable that multienzyme coimmobilization would be one among ensuing goals within the future. During this paper, we tend to concentrate on advances in methodology for catalyst immobilization on carbon nanotubes.
