Membrane selective electrodes were used to determine Naftidrofuryl Oxalate (NFL) in presence of its alkaline degradate (I). The membrane selective electrodes include construction of water insoluble ion-association complexes. These are NFL-tetraphenyl borate (NFL-TPB), NFL-reinikate (NFL-R). These complexes are used as electroactive materials, in poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) matrix membrane sensors, for the determination of NFL. The performance characteristics of these sensors, evaluated according

The suggested method was used to determine NFL in synthetic mixtures and in commercial tablets. The obtained results were statistically compared with official HPLC method, showing no significant difference with respect to accuracy and precision.
