A novel high-selective potentiometric sensor for molybdate was prepared with a PVC membrane combining μ-oxobis [5,10,15,20-tetra(p-methylphenyl)porphinatomanganese(III)] [[Mn(p-Me)TPP]2O] as an electroactive material and 2nitrophenyl octyl ether (o-NPOE) as a plasticizer in the percentage ratio of 3:65:32, [Mn(p-Me)TPP]2O:o-NPOE:PVC (w:w). The sensor exhibited a linear response with a Nernstian slope of 30.5 mV per decade within a concentration range of 2.1 × 10 -6 to 1.0 × 10 -1 M MoO4 2-,

The electrode showed improved selectivity toward molybdate with respect to common coexisting anions compared to monometalloporphyrin counterparts. Several electroactive materials and solvent mediators were compared and the experimental conditions were optimized. The sensor is preliminary applied to the assay of MoO4 2in corrosion inhibitor samples with satisfactory results.
