Topical issue “Solid-state potentiometric sensors”

Development of chemical sensors is an interdisciplinary endeavor that can be both challenging and rewarding. Potentiometric sensors represent one of the most attractive chemical sensors available today for continuous determination of pH, various ions and gases. This may be related to the small size, portability, low-energy consumption and relatively low cost of potentiometric sensors and the associated instrumentation. The development of solid-state potentiometric sensors and solid-state reference electrodes are in line with the current trends in analytical chemistry concerning microfabrication and mass-production of durable chemical sensors that may ultimately be integrated into miniaturized total analysis systems (μ-TAS). Not only miniaturized electrodes, but also conventional-size solid-state potentiometric sensors that require little or no maintenance are very attractive from the user’s...
