Thallium(l)-Selective Electrodes Based on Calix[4]pyrroles
Kyeong Soon Park, Sung Ouk Jung, Shim Sung Lee, Jae Sang Kim*
Thallium(I) selective electrodes based on meso-alkyl substituted calix[4]pyrroles such as, meso-octamethyl-calix[4]pyrrole (L1), meso-octaethylcalix[4]pyrrole (L2) and meso-tetraspirocyclohexylcalix[4]pyrrole (L3) as sensor molecules have been prepared and tested. The conditioned electrode (E4) incorporating L3gave best results with a wide working concentration range of 10-5.5 ~10-1 M near-Nernstian slope of 56.0 mV/decade of activity and detection limit of 10-6.0 M. This electrode exhibited a fast response time of 30 s and high selectivity over Na+ , K+ and other metal ions with only Ag+ interfering. The electrode works well in the pH range 2.0-11.0 and can be successfully employed for the determination of Tl+.This proposed electrode was also used as an indicator electrode in potentiometric titration of Tl+.
