Carbon nanoelectrodes prepared by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of carbon into the pre-pulled quartz capillaries can serve as versatile electrochemical nanosensors. We used such sensors for detection and quantitation of important analytes (e.g., dopamine) in small spaces. The applications of platinized carbon nanoelectrodes to measurement of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in living cells are also discussed.
