The reconstitution of glucose oxidase on a flavin-adenine-dinucleotide (FAD)-functionalized single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) associated with an Au electrode yields an electrically contacted biocatalyst (see picture). The efficiency of the electrical contact is controlled by the length of the SWCNT.
