New quadruply-bridged calix[6]arenes (I-V) have been studied as cesium selective ionophores in poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) membrane electrodes. PVC membranes were prepared with dioctyl sebacate (DOS) or 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether (o-NPOE) as the solvent mediator and potassium tetrakis(p-chlorophenyl)borate as the lipophilic salt additive. These ionophores produced electrodes with near-Nernstian slope. The selectivity coefficients for cesium ion with respect to alkali, alkaline earth and ammonium ions have been determined. The lowest detection limit (logaCs+ = -6.3) and the higher selectivity coefficient (logkpotCs+,Rb+ = -2.1 by SSM, -2.3 by FIM for calix[6]arene I) for Cs+ have been obtained for membranes containing quadruply-bridged calix[6]arenes (I, Ⅱ, Ⅲ), which have no para t-butyl substituents on the bridging benzene ring.
