Conducting polymers, i.e., electroactive conjugated polymers, are useful both as ion-to-electron transducers and as sensing membranes in solid-state ion-selective electrodes. Recent achievements over the last few years have resulted in significant improvements of the analytical performance of solid-contact ion-selective electrodes (solid-contact ISEs) based on conducting polymers as ion-to-electron transducer combined with polymeric ion-selective membranes. A significant amount of research has also been devoted to solid-state ISEs based on conducting polymers as the sensing membrane. This review gives a brief summary of the progress in the area in recent years.
