In this study, the fluoride concentration in medicinal plants was determined in a range from 0.25 to 250 µg g-1. Fluoride was determined using potentiometry with ion-selective electrode (ISE) after sample preparation. Sample masses ranging from 0.1 to 1.0 g were pressed into pellets and burned using the microwave-induced combustion (MIC) method. After combustion, fluoride was absorbed in diluted ammonia for further determination by using ISE. Recoveries close to 100% were obtained with a low relative standard deviation (5%), using 20 bar of oxygen and 5 min of reflux. Solutions obtained us...
