With the increasing technology on wearable and smart devices, many researchers have focused on developing new materials for various applications utilizing scalable techniques. Among these applications, the electrochemical sensor platforms play an important role in areas such as the public healthcare, food industry, agriculture systems and clinical - medical industry. Utilization of carbon fiber (CC) based textiles as the sensing material has several advantages in electrochemical sensing applications due to their flexibility, high conductivity, porous structure, biocompatibility and robustness in the corrosive environment. However, in order to develop highly selective, sensitive and fastresponsive electrochemical- and biosensors, it is necessary to functionalize the material with appropriate surface moieties. Here we present that by coating the CC with nanostructured metal oxides, we can achieve enhanced sensing characteristics, due to the increased surface area and good electrocatalytic activity of metal oxides. This approach has enabled effective detection of glucose.
