Electrophoretic deposition of macroporous assemblies of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) has been studied. The macroporous structure was created thanks to the presence of polystyrene (PS) beads which were co-deposited with the carbon nanotubes in a 60 V potential field. The ratio between the quantity of carbon nanotubes and polystyrene beads in the solution for deposition was found to be critical for the proper self-assembly of the composite film during electrophoretic deposition. The electrophoretic deposition of carbon nanotubes (CNT) on glassy carbon electrode was used here for the development of porous matrix with enhanced electroactive surface area. The prepared layer displayed a catalytic activity toward NADH oxidation and was used as a support for the d-sorbitol dehy- drogenase immobilization.
