Abstract

A simple one-step synthesis is described for the functionalization of poly(vinyl chloride) used for the preparation of anionic surfactant-selective membrane electrodes. The method is based on the nucleophilic substitution of a fraction of the chlorine atoms bound to the poly(vinyl chloride) backbone by trimethylamine. The prepared slightly charged polymer gave rise to high-quality surfactant-selective electrode membranes, which had a Nernstian response, short response time, and appropriate stability.
