In this work we present a comparative study of carbon derivative applications in amperometric biosensors and their effects on the properties of these biosensors. Biosensors were prepared by Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) immobilization on the composite electrodes composed of carbon black, carbon nanofiber (CNF), extended graphite, multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT), reduced graphene oxide (REGO) and poly(glycidyl methacrylateco- vinylferrocene) (P(GMA-co-VFc)) as mediator, covalent linker, and host matrix for carbon derivatives. The modified pencil graphite electrode (PGE) was used for the detection of hydrogen peroxide and to follow electrochemical behavior of different carbon derivatives which were recorded. The electrochemical characterization was investigated by cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy methods. Amperometric measurements showed that the REGO and MWCNT modified electrodes have excellent performance in comparison with other carbon derivatives studied.
