Abstract The history of the development of potentiometric sensors over the past century demonstrates progress in constructing single, discrete (i.e., separate, to distinguish from sensor arrays) ion sensors, which have been made as selective as possible. Only a few types reveal high selectivity. However, easy measurement procedure, with low cost and availability, give rise to the search for new ways for their successful application. The present document describes a new concept for application… 
Electronic Tongue Systems for the Analysis of Beverages
Developing an integrated system, with miniaturized reference electrode and using a minimum amount of sample was divided in three steps, each of them ending with a proof of concept application of proposed advances.
Sensor Arrays and Electronic Tongue Systems
The use of the sensor arrays inserted in flow injection or sequential injection systems will exemplify attempts made to automate the operation of electronic tongues and the use of artificial neural networks as the preferred data processing variant will be described.
Non-conventional Electrochemical and Optical Sensor Systems
This chapter gives an overview of recent techniques developed in both fields and presents several potential applications and case studies that deal with the context of water quality assessment.
