ABSTRACT

This paper introduces the development of an original PVC membrane electrode, based on 4-chloro-1,2-bis(2-pyridinecarboxamido)benzene
(CBPB) as a suitable carrier for the Ho3+ ion. The electrode presents a Nernstian slope of 19.7±0.3mV per decade for the Ho3+ ions across a broad working concentration range from 1.0×10−6 to 1.0×10−2M. The lower detection limit was 8.5×10−7M in the pH range 2.7–9.8, while the response time was rapid (<15s). Therefore, this potentiometric sensor displayed good
selectivity for a number of cations such as alkali, alkaline earth, transition and heavy metal ions. The practical applicability
of the electrode was demonstrated by its use as an indicator electrode in the potentiometric titration of Ho3+ ions with EDTA and in the determination of F- in mouth wash samples.

    ABSTRACT: A Dy(III) ion-selective electrode based on 6-hydrazino-1,5-diphenyl-6,7-dihydropyrazolo[3,4- d ]pyrimidine-4(5 H )-imine (HDDPI) as an excellent sensing material was developed. The sensor exhibits a Nernstian behavior (a slope of 19.6 ± 0.3 mV per decade) over a wide concentration range (from 1.0 × 10<sup>-1</sup> to 8.0 × 10<sup>-7</sup> M Dy) with a detection limit of 4.2 × 10<sup>-7</sup> M. The sensor response is independent of pH of the solution in the pH range 3.5-8.3. The sensor possesses the advantages of short conditioning time, fast response time (<10 s) and in particular, good selectivity and sensitivity to the dysprosium ion in the presence of a variety of cations, including alkali, alkaline earth, transition and heavy metal ions. The sensor also showed a great enhancement in selectivity coefficients for dysprosium ions, in comparison with the formerly mentioned dysprosium sensors. The electrode can be used for at least 10 weeks without any considerable divergence in the potentials. The proposed electrode was successfully used as an indicator electrode in potentiometric titration of Dy(III) ions with EDTA. The membrane sensor was also used in the determination of concentration of F<sup>-</sup> ions in some mouth washing solutions and in the Dy<sup>3+</sup> recovery from solution.

    ABSTRACT: Highly selective and sensitive poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) membrane electrodes based on 6-methyl-4-{[1-(2-thienyl)methylidene]amino}3-thioxo-3,4-dihydro-1,2,4-triazin-5-(2H)-one (MATDTO) as new carriers for gadolinium ion-selective electrode was reported. The membrane solutions containing PVC, o-nitrophenyl octyl ether (NPOE) as plasticizer, sodium tetraphenyl borate (NaTPB) as lipophilic ionic additive, and MATDTO, displays a calibration response for Gd3+ ions over a wide concentration range of 1.0x10(-6)-1.0x10(-1) M with Nernstian slopes of 19.8+/-0.2 mV per decade and a detection limit as 5.8x10(-7) M. The sensor has a relatively fast response time of <10 s and can be used in the pH range 3.2-8.7 for at least 2 months without any significant divergence in potentials. The selectivity coefficients for mono-, di-, and trivalent cations indicate good selectivity for Gd(III) ions over a large number of interfering cations. The membrane sensor was used as an indicator electrode in the potentiometric titration of Gd(III) ions with EDTA. The proposed electrode was also applied to the determination of concentration of Gd(III) ions in soil and sediment samples and validation with CRMs.

    ABSTRACT: The PVC membrane, containing benzyl bisthiosemicarbazone (BTC) as a suitable ionophore, exhibited a Nernstian response for the Nd3+ ions over a wide concentration range between 1.0 × 10−2 and 1 × 10−6 M, with a detection limit of 6.2 × 10−7 M in the pH range of 3.7–8.3. It demonstrated a fast response time (<10 s) and it could be used for at least 7 weeks without any major potential deviation. Furthermore, the electrode revealed high selectivity with respect to all the common alkali, alkaline earth, transition and heavy metal ions, including the members of the lanthanide family other than Nd3+. Concerning its applications, it was effectively employed for the determination of neodymium ions in soil and sediment samples and its validation with CRM.
