Experiment: Ion-selective determination of fluoride The development of ion-selective electrodes (ISE) makes possible the determination of the concentration of ions of choice using selectively sensitive electrode membranes. 12, pp. In rare instances, the naturally occurring fluoride concentration may approach 10 mg/L. This article is cited by 33 publications. Fluoride in Drinking-water, Background document for development of WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality, is an update of the background document published in the second edition of the Guidelines. 887-912. Principle Fluorides in excessive quantities and absence of fluorides in water, both create problems. Measurement is performed conveniently with inexpensive equipment. A disfigurement in teeth of humans known as mottled enamel or dental fluorosis is occured in those, who consume waters with fluoride content in excess of 1.0 mg/L. 14, No. This article is cited by 22 publications. Some fluorosis may occur when the fluoride level exceeds the recommended limits. Van Loon. and Okibe F.G. Department of Chemistry, Ahmadu Bello University, … Aim To determine the fluorides present in water. Spectrometric Determination of Fluoride in Water, Soil and Vegetables from *Corresponding Author:Elaoyi D. Determination of Fluoride Ion Using an Ion Selective Electrode INTRODUCTION In recent years direct potentiometry has become important as an analytical technique largely because of the development of ion-selective electrodes (ISE). (1981). About Fluoride Determination by Ion-Selective Electrode Fluoride is present in water and many food products.

Determination of Fluoride in Water . The update was prepared by Mr J. Fawell, United Kingdom, to whom special thanks are due. Emi K. Horikawa, Richard Steelman, Thomas L. Flanagan, Edward J. L. L. Thatcher. This type of electrode incorporates a special ion-sensitive membrane which may be glass, a crystalline inorganic material or an organic ion-exchanger. Fluoride may occur naturally in water or it may be added in controlled amounts. More than 20 ions can be determined by ISE, for example cations such as: Ag+, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Cu2+ and anions like: F-, Cl-, S2-, CN-.
