2-(4-Oxopentan-2-ylideneamino) isoindoline-1,3-dione (OID) was found to be a suitable neutral ionophore in the fabrication of a highly selective Ho3+membrane sensor. The electrode has a near-Nernstian slope of 19.6±0.5 mV per decade with a wide concentration range between 1.0×10-6and 1.0×10-2mol/L in the pH range of 3.5–8.8, having a fast response time (∼5 s) and a detection limit of 5.8×10-7mol/L. This electrode presented very good selectivity and sensitivity towards the Ho3+ions over a wide

The practical utility of the electrode has been demonstrated by its use as an indicator electrode for the potentiometric titration of a Ho3+solution with EDTA and for the determination of Ho3+ions concentration in mixtures of two and three different ions.
