Anal Chem. 2009 Jul 15;81(14):5925-34. doi: 10.1021/ac900727w.For the first time, FTIR-ATR spectroscopy was used to study the water uptake and its diffusion in ion-selective membranes (ISMs) based on poly(acrylates) (PAs) and silicone rubber (SR), which are emerging materials for the fabrication of ISMs for ultratrace analysis. Three different types of PA membranes were studied, consisting of copolymers of methyl methacrylate with n-butyl acrylate, decyl methacrylate, or isodecyl acrylate. Read More
