Ultrasensitive Pb(II) potentiometric sensor based on copolyaniline nanoparticles in a plasticizer-free membrane with a long lifetime.
A newly designed Pb(II) potentiometric sensor based on intrinsically conducting nanoparticles of solid poly(aniline-co-2-hydroxy-5-sulfonic aniline) possessing many ligating functional groups like -NH-, -N=, -OH, -SO(3)H, -NH(2) as ionophores in plasticizer-free vinyl resin solid membranes has been fabricated. A linear Nernstian response is obtained within a wide Pb(II) activity range from 1.0 × 10(-3) to 1.0 × 10(-10) M with a detection limit as low as 2.2 × 10(-11) M. The pH independent pla...Expand abstract
