Glass electrode

Keyword Definition

A glass electrode is a type of ion-selective electrode made of a doped glass membrane that is sensitive to a specific ion.  Ion-selective electrodes (ISE, including glasses) are part of a galvanic cell.  The electric potential of the electrode system in solution is sensitive to changes in the content of a certain type of ions, which is reflected in the dependence of the electromotive force (EMF) of galvanic element concentrations of these ions.
