Homework Help: Fluoride Ion selective electrode measurements

  1. Dec 11, 2007 #1
    Does anyone know why we prepare F- containing solutions with plastic beakers and cups instead of the regular glass beakers before measuring the responses with F- ion selective electrode
    Is it because F- in corrosive?

    where can i find infomation on this?


    Thanks a lot~
