Recent reports on application of nanostructurized materials for potentiometric sensing purposes point out advantages of novel structures . Here a methods of ions-selective electrodes preparation using solely spray coating method was reported . As an electrical lead support and transducer spray coated CNT layers were used. The ion-selective membrane was coated also by spraying membrane cocktail over a part of a CNTs layer. This method offers significant advantages compared to screen-printed electrodes used also for potentiometric applications . The benefits of the herein-proposed approach include fully automatic sensor preparation and minimized use of chemicals allowing for the production of low-cost sensors that can be applied as disposables. The obtained sensors (as the model system potassium-selective sensors were prepared) are characterized with analytical parameters well comparable with that of conventional, all-solid-state, ion-selective electrodes. In addition, the applicability of the herein-proposed approach to prepare other ion-selective electrodes was tested on examples of H+
