Determination of fluoride ions using a selective electrode (potentiometry)

How it works

When the electrode is in contact with the solution to be analyzed containing F- ions, these ions can migrate from one defect to another in the crystal of the membrane. This creates a potential difference between the outer membrane (touching the solution) and the inner membrane (touching a KF solution at a known concentration). This potential difference depends on the concentration of F-.
