Abstract Using multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) as templates, noble metal (Au, Ag, Pt or Pd) nanoparticles (NPs) were fabricated in situ by electrochemistry with a diameter of 40-60 nm. Further, catalytic behaviors of these composite materials were investigated. Experiments showed that such carbon nanotubes decorated with Pd NPs modified glassy carbon electrodes exhibited higher electrocatalytic ability to some molecules such as evolution of hydrogen, reduction of oxygen and oxidation of ascorbic acid. Atomic force microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry were used to characterize the film formation and their properties.
