non-crystalline electrodes
Electrodes in which a support matrix, containing an @[email protected] (either cationic or anionic), a plasticizer solvent, and possibly an uncharged, @[email protected] species, forms the ion-selective @[email protected] which is usually interposed between two aqueous solutions. The support used can be either macroporous [e.g. poly(propylene carbonate) @[email protected], glass frit, etc.] or microporous (e.g. 'thirsty' glass or @[email protected] @[email protected] material such as PVC) yielding with the ion-exchanger and the solvent a 'solidified' homogeneous mixture. These electrodes exhibit a response due to the presence of the ion-exchange material in the @[email protected] The [email protected]@[email protected]@ is an example.
