The two macrocyclic ligands 2,12-(2-methoxyaniline)2-4,14-Me2-[20]-1,4,11,14-tetraene-1,5,8,11,15,18-N6 (L1) and 2,12-(2-methoxyaniline)(2)-4,14-Me2-8,18-dimethylacrylate-[20]-1,4,11,14-tetraene-1,5,8,11,15,18-N6 (L2) have been synthesized and explored as neutral ionophores for preparing poly(vinylchloride) (PVC) based membrane sensors selective to Yb(III) ions. Effects of various plasticizers and anion excluders were studied in detail and improved performance was observed. The best performance was obtained for the membrane sensor having a composition of L2:PVC:BA:NaTPB in the ratio of 5: 40: 52: 3 (w/w; mg). The performance of the membrane based on L2 was compared with polymeric membrane electrode (PME) as well as with coated graphite electrode (CGE). The electrodes exhibit Nernstian slope for Yb3+ ions with limits of detection of 4.3 x 10(-8) M for PME and 5.8 x 10(-9) M for CGE. The response time for PME and CGE was found to be 10 s and 8 s, respectively. The potentiometric responses are independent of the pH of the test solution in the pH range 3.0-8.0 for PME and 2.5-8.5 for CGE. The CGE has found to work satisfactorily in partially non-aqueous media upto 30% (v/v) content of methanol, ethanol and 20% (v/v) content of acetonitrile and could be used for a period of 5 months. The CGE was used as indicator electrode in the potentiometric titration of Yb3+ ions with EDTA and in determination of fluoride ions in mouthwash samples. It can be used for determination of sulfite in red and white wine samples and also in determination of Yb3+ in various binary mixtures with quantitative results.
