Abstract The electrochemical behavior of a film of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) functionalized with carboxylic acid groups was studied extensively on a glassy carbon (GC) electrode. One stable couple corresponding to the redox of the carboxylic acid group, which was supported by XPS and IR experiments, was observed. The electrode process involved four electrons, while the rate-determining step was a one-electron reduction. The SWNT film-modified electrode showed favorable electrocatalytic behavior toward the oxidation of biomolecules such as dopamine, epinephrine, and ascorbic acid.
