Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, entitled “Recent Study and Application of Carbon Nanotube and Other Carbon-Based Nanomaterials”, focuses on the recent advancements and applications of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and other carbon-based nanomaterials. Carbon nanotubes, with their unique properties and exceptional structural characteristics, have attracted significant attention in various fields of science and engineering. This Special Issue highlights the latest research findings, methodologies, and applications related to CNTs and other carbon-based nanomaterials.

This collection of articles covers a wide range of topics, including synthesis and characterization techniques, first-principle simulations, functionalization methods, and emerging applications. Researchers delve into the study of different types of carbon nanotubes, such as single-walled and multi-walled carbon nanotubes, exploring their unique properties and potential applications in electronics, energy storage, biomedical engineering, and environmental remediation.

This Special Issue highlights advancements in fabrication techniques, such as chemical vapor deposition, arc discharge, and laser ablation, and their impact on the quality and scalability of carbon nanotubes. Simulation study via different approaches such as the first-principle calculation needs to be addressed as well. Furthermore, researchers investigate novel functionalization strategies to enhance the compatibility and interaction of carbon nanotubes with other materials, leading to improved performance and tailored applications.

Background: Voltammetric analysis of the neurotransmitter epinephrine (EP) was performed using bismuth immobilized on a carbon nanotube paste electrode (BCE), whose properties were compared with those of a carbon nanotube paste electrode (CE). BCE was found to be more efficient in detecting EP. Methods: The analytical parameters used were 0.3 V square-wave (SW) stripping voltammetric amplitude, 400 Hz frequency, −0.8 V initial potential, and 0.015 V increment potential. The optimized conditions were applied to an assay of a carp’s front fin. Results: A BCE was inserted into a carp’s front fin muscle, and a stimulus was given every 50 s. This circuit is easy to use and does not require much analytical preparation time. Conclusions: The working electrode is miniscule, and its detection limit is very low. The in vivo muscle’s chronoamperometric nerve currents were analyzed. These results have potential for applications in medical diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, interface controllers, and other fields.
