Pt(II) 5,10,15,20-tetra(4-methoxy-phenyl)-porphyrin (PtTMeOPP) was used in the construction of new ion-selective sensors. The potentiometric response characteristics (slope and selectivity) of iodide and bromide-selective electrodes based on (PtTMeOPP) metalloporphyrin in o-nitrophenyloctylether (NPOE), dioctylphtalate (DOP) and dioctylsebacate (DOS) plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) membranes are compared. The best results were obtained for the membranes plasticized with DOP and NPOE. The sensors have linear responses with near-Nernstian slopes toward bromide and iodide ions and good selectivity. The membrane plasticized with NPOE was electrochemically characterized using the EIS method to determine its water absorption and the diffusion coefficient into the membrane
