Carbon based nanostructure materials exhibit unique mechanical, electrical, and optical characteristics, which may result in many unique device designs. These materials are biocompatible, chemically inert but capable of altering their electronic properties in the presence of some chemical species, and dimensionally compatible with biomolecules. They have interesting electronic characteristics, thus rendering them as potential chemical and biosensors. The recent progress in nanostructured materials and their possible applications in chemical and biological sensors could have a significant impact on data collection, processing, and recognition. This investigation is aimed towards evaluating the applications of nano-structures of carbon and giving a consolidated view of the structure, properties and applications of carbon nanotubes, with the aim of drawing attention to useful available information and to enhancing the interest in this new highly advanced technological ﬁeld for the researcher and the manufacturing engineer.
