The ruthenium oxide-hexacyanoferrate nanoparticles (RuOHCFNP) were prepared by an electroless deposition approach and the electrochemical, spectral and morphological behavior of RuOHCFNP modified electrode has been investigated. RuOHCFNP were well decorated on the walls of carbon nanotubes and shows stable voltammetric response. This electrode is highly stable with high reproducibility.
