Ion Selective Electrode Experiments

These consist of experiments for various courses that make use of ISE’s. They are arranged by date except for the first entry – the determination of fluoride in toothpaste. This is kind of a classic experiment that uses commercially available TISAB buffer and the fluoride combination ISE. It can be simplified by determining the fluoride content of various water samples and bottled waters.
