Naproxen membrane electrodes based on different plasticizers and the quaternary ammonium salts (QASs) dimethyldidecylammonium bromide, methyltrioctylammonium chloride, or tetraoctylammonium chloride, were prepared. The following basic parameters were investigated for the optimal electrode: measurement range (10−4 − 10−1 mol L−1), slope of the linear range of the calibration curve (−58.3 mV decade−1), limit of detection (6.0 × 10−5 mol L−1), lifetime (2.5 months), dependence of the electrode potential on pH (5.5 − 9.0), reproducibility of potential (1.2 mV) and selectivity coefficients in relation to selected organic and inorganic anions. The electrode was utilized for determination of naproxen in tablets by the calibration curve method and the standard addition method. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
