Nanostructured materials are often employed in electrode manufacturing in order to enhance charge transfer kinetics as well as improve operational conditions in energy storage and electroanalytical devices. Considering the impact of modifying electrode surface with conductive nanostructured elements and the applicability of these modifications in pharmaceutical, biomedical, food, chemical and other sciences, this commentary is intended to briefly discuss the general characteristics and parameters underlying the uses of these devices, as well as foment the importance of nanostructured composites for analytical and electronic applications.
