It is well known that mercury (Hg) can cause serious human health problems as well as it can easily enter the food chain and accumulate in human body. This research aim is to find a practically alternative way to monitor the Hg ion which can be simply used and handle such as a naked-eye Hg ion strip tester. The sensing membranes were fabricated by electeospining process containing rhodamine derivatives based on hydrophobic polymer as the main media. The parameters of electrospinning process such as organic solvent types and polymer concentration were investigated. Moreover, sensitivity and interference for Hg2+ sensing membrane were investigated.
