    Lipophilic uranyl salophenes derivatives I and II were used as ionophores in membranes of phosphate-selective CHEMFETs. High selectivity for H2PO4− over other anions was obtained for these sensors. The influence of the ionophore structure on the sensor durability was investigated. CHEMFETs based on derivative II exhibited better long-term stability due to the better solvation of this ionophore in the membrane phase. The microsensor durability can be improved decreasing the amount of the ammonium salt in the membrane to 5% mol, with only little decrease of initial selectivity.
