Abstract A simple potentiometric method is described for the rapid determination of nafronyl-drugs in pharmaceutical preparations such as tablets. Nafronyl ion-selective membrane electrodes with either the nafronyl-dipicrylamine ion-pair complex in 1,2-dichloroethane or the nafronyl-dinonylnaphthalenesulphonic acid ion-pair complex in a PVC matrix as electroactive materials were used. Both electrodes exhibit near-Nernstian responses to protonated-nafronyl activity from 10(-2) to about 10(-5)M, in pH ranges that depend on the nature of the electroactive material used in the membrane. Nafronyl in the mg-range can be determined by potentiometric titration with sodium tetraphenylborate solution, with a relative standard deviation of less than 2.0\%. No interference from any excipients in the tablets was observed.
