ABSTRACT
This article reviews the impact of carbon nanotubes on analytical science, and the main current and future applications of carbon nanotubes in this field. Given that it is necessary to solubilize carbon nanotubes for many applications, we consider the procedures developed to achieve this. The use of carbon nanotubes in analytical chemistry as a target analyte and as an analytical tool is also discussed. Chromatographic and electrophoretic methods used to separate and characterize carbon nanotubes are presented. The use of carbon nanotubes as an analytical tool in filters and membranes, as sorbent material for solid phase extraction, in electrochemical (bio)sensors, and in separation methods is discussed. It is clear that while nanotubes are being tested for use in many different fields, their truly enormous potential has yet to be realized in analytical chemistry.
