This chapter gives a brief overview of the preparation, characterization, and analytical applications for combinations of polymers and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that have been prepared in different ways, which are used as an electrode material. For this purpose, multiwalled or single-walled CNTs are composed of different types of conductive polymers. The preparation of CNT-conducting polymer composite electrodes was explained by their deposition order. Chemical and morphological surface characterizations of composite electrodes were presented by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, cyclic voltammetry, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. In addition, CNT-based polymer composite electrode usage in sensor applications for trace organic/inorganic compounds and energy applications is discussed in the last part of this chapter.
