Several mono-and bis(benzo-18-crown-6) ethers comprising o-nitrophenyl urethane moieties were synthesized and studied as ionophores in PVC membrane electrodes. The bis(crown ether)s were found to exhibit good potentiometric Cs + selectivity over mono and divalent cations as compared to the respective mono(crown ether)s.
