The analysis of neodymium and its compounds in various samples is very important, and the application of varied instrumental techniques for this purpose has hence been reported. Accordingly, different electrochemical electrodes have been developed for the analysis of Nd3+ over varied concentration ranges in different matrices. This text tends to offer an overview of these potentiometric instruments with a focus on the structure of the ionophores, as well as the nature and amount of the components used to develop the sensing parts of these electrodes.
