Given the importance of developing cost and time saving tools, techniques and procedures for analyzing of lanthanide ions in various media, development and use of ion selective sensors for these ions is important. In this light, studying the various ion selective electrodes developed for a specific target species can create insight about the factors creating selectivity in these devices. Therefore, a review is made on the ion selective sensors prepared for lutetium over the past years. The authors have tried to provide detailed information on the composition and function of each sensor to provide better understanding for further research on the construction, as well as, the mechanism of action of these devices.
