    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific


    This paper describes a method for on-line pH measurement in compacted water-saturated bentonite with a solid IrOx electrode. The results obtained in different experimental arrangements and different pH conditions are presented to illustrate the applicability of the method. The results show that it is possible to measure the pH in compacted bentonite and follow the change of the conditions as a function of time in long-term experiments.
