Abstract: Solid acid–base sensors were prepared by encapsulating two pH indicators (brilliant yellow or acridine) within a silica matrix by the sol–gel method using three different routes: (1) non-hydrolytic, (2) acid catalyzed and (3) base catalyzed. The interactions of the silica-indicator with the resulting materials were then investigated by cyclic and differential pulse voltammetry. Complementary, ultraviolet–visible, photoacoustic spectroscopy was employed for the characterization of the interactions by monitoring the band shifts (bathochromic or hypsochromic, depending on the sol–gel route) between the neat pH indicators and those encapsulated within the silica network. Furthermore, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy showed that the N 1s binding energy in brilliant yellow was shifted for the material resulting from the acid route. The electrochemical behavior and the pH indicator interactions with the silica network were dependent on the nature of the employed sol–gel route. For the sensors prepared with acridine, the interactions with the silica network took place through the nitrogen group from the pyridinic ring. For the brilliant yellow indicator, different behaviors were observed depending on the route, suggesting different processes during preparation or analysis. For the basic catalyzed and non-hydrolytic routes, it was not possible to assign a specific interaction. Nevertheless, it seemed that interactions might have taken place through the hydroxyl and/or sulphonic groups. Furthermore, for the brilliant yellow sensor prepared through the acid route, it was possible to show that the interaction probably or partially occurred through the azo groups.
