Paper Abstract

Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were chemically modified with a ferrocene-lysine conjugate and the material was deposited on indium tin oxide (ITO) and the surfaces were evaluated for their ability to act as electrochemical sensors for chemical warfare agent (CWA) mimics methylphosphonic acid (MPA), ethylmethylphosphonate (EMP) and diethyl cyanophosphonate (DECP).
