The potential response of a flow-through ion sensor using a plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) membrane doped with amphiphilic anions to two synthetic polyelectrolyte cations was investigated. The potential responses to the polyelectrolyte cations were characterized in the terms of extractability of amphiphilic anion, concentration of amphiphilic anion salt in the membrane, solvent property of plasticizer, and leakage of amphiphilic anion salt. The concentration of amphiphilic anion salt in the membrane was a main factor in the potential response to polyelectrolyte cation. The examination of FTIR spectra in the plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) membrane containing amphiphilic ion salt showed that the leakage of amphiphilic ion salt from the membrane was prevented with the addition of polyelectrolyte ion. It was deduced that the potential response of polyelectrolyte cation was due to a decrease in the concentration of sodium ion, the counter ion to amphiphilic ion, as the primary ion in the plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) membrane.
