A calcium ion-selective PVC membrane electrode based on neutral carrier n,n,n',n'-tetracyclohexyl-3-oxapetanediamide, using di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate as the plasticizer and potassium tetrakis (4-chlorophenyl) borate as the additive is reported in this paper. The ion selective membrane consists of 1 wt% of the Ca2+ selective ligand, 65 wt% of the plasticizer, 1 wt% of the additive and 33 wt% of poly (vinyl chloride) powder. The electrode has the linear response range of 2.0 x 10(-7)-10(-1) mol/L with the Nernstian slope of 28 mV/decade at 25 degrees C and the detection limit of 2.0 x 10(-8) mol/L. The response time of the calcium ion-selective electrode is as the concentration of calcium ion is rapidly shifted from 10(-5) to 10(-4) mol/L. The potential stability and reproducibility are good. The free calcium in blood serum was determined by the calcium ion-selective electrode with satisfactory results.
