Abstract: Thiosemicarbazone derivatives have been used as ion carriers for the preparation of PVC-matrix based mercury(II)selective membrane sensors. The electrodes give near-Nernstian responses in the linear concentration range of 1.0×10-1-5.0×10-6 M  with detection limits of the order of ~10-6 M  . The stable potentiometric signals are obtained within a short time period of 20-255. The effect of different plasticizers has been studied and dioctylsebacate (DOS) found to give a better response in comparison to other plasticizers. Selectivity coefficient values (log KPotHg,M ) have been evaluated using fixed interference method. Better selectivity for mercury(II) ions is observed over many of the mo novalent (Na+, K+ and NH4+) and divalent ions (Mg2+, Ca2+, Zn 2+ , Pb2+ , Ni2+, Co2+, etc.). The sensors have also been used as indicator electrodes in potentiometric titration of mercury(II) ions with EDT A and its determination in synthetic water samples.
