Functionalization of ISE Sensor for Metal Ion Detection
In this work, we report the study of functionalized platinum (Pt) electrodes based on a polymeric membrane (PVC) including an ionophore (ethyln diamin tetracetic EDTA) sensitive for mercury ions Hg2+. The optimised working conditions of the sensors have been studied with regard to the sensitivity performances; in particular, the polarisation was adjusted to - 0.2V/SCE. Ion sensitivity of sensors have been tested for Hg(II) via Cd(II) in aqueous solution. A layer of EDTA deposited on platinum electrode has been characterised by impedance spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry methods.
