A novel optical sensor membrane for the detection of mercury(II) (Hg(II)) is presented. The sensing layer is composed of plasticized poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) containing a lipophilic boratesalt as areagent for Hg(II), and theamphiphilic oxacarbocyanine dye (DiOC₁₆(3)) as the optical transducer. The sensing scheme is based on the decomposition of the borate anion in the presence of Hg(II). Since ...
