A new diclofenac-selective electrode based on an ion associate of diclofenac with a basic dye BIK as a membrane carrier was developed. The electrode exhibits a good Nernstian slope of 60.0 ± 1.1 mV decade-1 and a linear range of 1.0 · 104 to 5.0 · 102 mol L1 for diclofenac. The detection limit was 5.0 · 105 mol L1. The electrode has a fast response time 23 s and can be used for more the four months. The selective coefficients were determined and this electrode can be used in the pH range of 711. The analytical results obtained by applying the proposed method compared very favorably with whos obtained by the Ukrainian Pharmacopoeia Standard procedure. This membrane electrode was successfully tested in for the determination of diclofenac in pharmaceuticals.
