The physiochemical properties such as (i) electrical conductivity in solution phase, (ii) response to electrochemical perturbations, (iii) functional group finger print in Fourier Transform InfraRed (FTIR), Ultra Violet-Visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy and (iv) surface morphology employing Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) were studied for α,β-tubulin dimer (microtubules) extracted from the plant source, Arachis Hypogaea. To understand the difference in basic mechanism of electronic conduction, a comparison of physiochemical properties of microtubules, Graphite Encapsulated Iron Cobalt nanoparticles (GE-FeCo NPs) and Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNTs) dispersed in the buffer solution were also studied. The electrical conductivity of the microtubules suspended in buffer solution is calculated as 0.056 S/m ± 0.005 S/m and the calculated value is approximately 37 times higher than the value of 0.0015S/m reported in the literature. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
