Potentiometric sensors based on lipophilic alkylated cyclodextrins exhibit a good response to the guanidinium ion, with higher selectivity over sodium than previously reported ionophores; 2.6-didodecyl-β-cyclodextrin has also been shown to exhibit selective response to the guanidine derivatives metformin and phenformin in a simulated clinical electrolyte background.
