Solid-State Ion-Selective Electrode

Schematic diagram of a solid-state electrode, the membrane for which is either a polycrystalline inorganic salt or a single crystal of an inorganic salt. We can fashion a polycrystalline solid-state ion-selective electrode by sealing a 1–2 mm thick pellet of Ag2S—or a mixture of Ag2S and a second silver salt or another metal sulfide—into the end of a nonconducting plastic cylinder, filling the cylinder with an internal solution containing a fixed activity of analyte, and placing a reference electrode into the internal solution.
