Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) exhibit extraordinary physical and electronic properties because of their intermolecular structure. In this proposed researched paper we introduced a novel technique for the preparation of Carbon nanotubes using Allium cepa extract. Collagen thin film sheet is having a resistance of more than 10Mohms and it acts an insulator. Hence we want to prepare as a semiconducting collagen thin film, first, we incorporated a conducting ink to reduce the resistance to semiconducting range, less than 2M ohms. Therefore, a conducting ink was prepared by mixing carbon nanotubes, collagen and hydroxylethyl cellulose. Secondly, Collagen thin films were prepared using fish scales; it is an insulator thin film sheet which has flexibility and more physico-chemical strength.
