The sequential sodium borohydride (SBH, NaBH4) reduction method was utilized to prepare the 0.1 % CdSe/CNT, 0.1 % CdS/CNT, 0.1 % (CdS−CNT)/CdTe, and 0.1 % (CdSe−CNT)/CdTe catalysts. The XRD, SEM-EDS, TEM, and XPS analyses were used to characterize the catalysts. The electrochemical measurements were examined by cyclic voltammetry (CV), chronoamperometry (CA), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) analyses for glucose electrooxidation. The characterization analyses revealed that the desired structure was formed on the support material. The electrochemical analysis results indicated that the 0.1 % (CdSe−CNT)/CdTe catalyst has higher catalytic activity, stability, and resistance compared to other catalysts with a specific activity of 2.4 mA cm−2.
