In this work we present the synthesis, characterization and application of the nanodiamond- polypyrrole nanocomposite films as electrochemical active electrode for sensing cholesterol. Cholesterol oxidase and esterase have been covalently attached to the surface of the films. Results showed that the inclusion of nanodiamond to the polymeric matrix increment the surface area and provide carboxylic groups capable to perform reaction with the amide groups present in the enzymes. Further, the sensitivity of the electrode to the cholesterol content have been examined.
