This project aims at the development of modified electrodes to detect hydrogen peroxide-based association of functionalized conductive polymer poly (5-amino 1-naphthol) to Prussian blue (PB), seeking a synergy between the properties each of these components. The available studies have reported the great potential that BP has in the development of sensors. However, these same studies also show that not only the identity of substances that make up the electrode, but also the method of deposition of Prussian blue (PB) determine the effectiveness of the device. This paper aims to study different routes of modification of electrodes, through the use of poly (5-amino 1-naphthol) and the CP in order to produce compounds with unique properties arising from the synergism between elements of different trainers and methods chemical deposition and electrodeposition, layer by layer deposition and formation of hybrid organic / inorganic polymer with the PB.
