A cation-responsive electrode system has been developed which incorporates aza-substituted crown ethers as ligands. In a novel application, uncomplexed crown ethers were used in the pelletized form for ionic transport. Electrodes have been produced which can be conditioned for a particular ion and following their use, be reconditioned and reused for other ions. Preparation method and lifetime studies are included.
The responses of two crown ethers with plasticizers were evaluated for thirteen representative cations. The concentration range covered in each evaluation was 1 x 10-1 to 1 x 10-7 M. For those ions exhibiting Nernstian or near-Nernstian response, selectivity coefficients were derived.
