Abstract:By performing an acid-base titration by coulometric generation of OH− or H+ ions at an inert electrode in close proximity to the pH-sensitive gate of an ISFET, it is possible to determine the acid or base concentration of a solution using the ISFET as an indicator device for the equivalence point in the titration curve. Typical values for the titration time are 0.1 to 10 s for acid or base concentrations ranging from 0.5 × 10−3 to 10 × 10−3 mol/l.

By placing the counter electrode for the supplied current on the backside of a small piece of printed-circuit board on which the sensor-actuator is attached, we obtain a dipstick-like structure.
