Abstract

In the last years nanoscience and nanotechnology have cast light on the understanding of matter, unraveling properties that have never been found in corresponding bulk compounds. Carbon nanotubes and metallophthalocyanines are among the most prominent materials in this emerging field due to their outstanding characteristics, specially the electrical ones, which enables them to be included in the fabrication of several devices. This project aims to immobilize these two species in nanostructured films obtained through the layer-by-layer technique (LbL)for the development of biosensors. The tools to investigate the properties of these filmes will be, mainly, the electrical and vibrational spectroscopies. Emphasis will be given to the study of the electrical behaviour of these compounds under the influence of this specific architecture.
