Applications of Ion-Selective Electrodes
The examples listed in Table 8 on the following pages are in no way claimed to be a complete survey. The fact that biochemical applications are given somewhat more weight here is because, in this author’s opinion, it is in this area that the advantages of the ion-selective electrode analysis technique (direct activity determination with miniaturized sensors) are most convincingly demonstrated, especially in view of the complexity of the sample media. For the analytically trained laboratory chemist, the capabilities and limits already discussed in the text should suffice to allow him to develop his own new applications. In industrial applications ion-selective electrodes are being employed with increasing frequency. With the proper “know-how”, these ion-selective electrodes are not nearly as unsuitable as a few early bad experiences would lead one to expect.
