In this article, Prussian blue (PB) covered multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs)/polypyrrole (PPy) ternary composite nanofibers with good dispersibility in water and ethanol have been prepared by directly mixing ferric-(III) chloride and potassium ferricyanide in the presence of MWCNT/PPy coaxial nanofibers under ambient conditions. Transmission electron microscopy shows that the as-synthesized PB nanoparticles covered on the surface of MWCNT/PPy nanofibers. Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, UV–Visible spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction patterns have been used to characterize the obtained MWCNT/PPy/PB ternary composite nanofibers. The MWCNT/PPy/PB ternary composite nanofibers exhibit good electrocatalytic response to detection of H2O2 and provide a new material to modify electrode for amperometric biosensors.
