When I give a course in ion-selective electrodes, I normally ask my students in the very beginning of the first lecture: did you ever measure pH? Almost always, even if these are young first-year students, their answer is “yes.” Indeed, the most common and most frequently used ISE, the glass pH electrode, is familiar to nearly everybody who is doing chemistry, biology, in many branches of technology in industry, in agriculture, in environmental monitoring, and in various other activities. Thus, most of us know at least a little bit about ISEs and, more generally, about chemical and also physical sensors.
