Abstract

Carbon nanotubes receive considerable attention in the area of electrochemistry not only due to their reported structural, mechanical or electronic properties but because they represent the world's smallest electrodes allowing electrochemistry to be performed where other electrode materials cannot penetrate. In this review, we overview recent developments in this area summarizing the fundamental advances in understanding the various factors and parameters that can significantly affect the electrochemical reactivity of carbon nanotubes, which is essential for their continual use and successful implementation in a plethora of areas and applications.
