Synthesis and characterization of monoazathiacrown ethers as ionophores for polymeric membrane silver-selective electrodes.

Nine monoazathiacrown ethers have been synthesized and explored as ionophores for polymeric membrane Ag(+)-selective electrodes. Potentiometric responses reveal that the ion-selective electrodes (ISEs) based on 2,2'-thiodiethanethiol derivatives can exhibit excellent selectivities toward Ag(+). The plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) membrane electrode using… CONTINUE READING
