Abstract: The use of nanomaterials for the development of electrochemical nanosensors has attracted growing interest in recent years. The enhanced chemical and physical properties arising from discrete nanoelectrode devices or microelectrodes modified with nanomaterials make these devices an attractive option for the improvement of current electroanalytical applications. This review discusses and describes advances made since 2010 in the application of nanomaterials in a number of major fields, namely: health, security, law enforcement, environment, and food safety.

Keywords: electrochemistry, nanowire, nanoparticles, nanotubes, graphene, voltammetry, impedance
