In this section we will describe the fabrication process involved in the different carbon-based electrodes and explain how the functionalization for the sensing event is carried out. Special attention will be paid to carbon nanotube working electrodes, which have been developed in various electrode arrangements. Other carbon systems such as Graphite-Epoxy Composites (GEC) will be also built up as a matter of comparison to evaluate the sensor capabilities of carbon nanotube electrodes.
