Flow injection analysis (FIA) system incorporating a fluoride ion-selective electrode (FISE) as detector is described. Laboratory-built cascade flow cell equipped with FISE and reference electrode is used for flow injection potentiometric determination of Fe(III) based on monitoring of the formation of FeF2+ in acid solution. Under optimized flow conditions (4.0 mL min-1, 300 $\mu$samples, 10-5 mol L-1 sodium fluoride in the carrier stream) a rectilinear calibration graph is obtained by plotting the peak height versus concentration of iron in the range of Fe(III) concentration from $1 \times 10^{-4}$ to $1 \times 10^{-1}$ mol L-1 in a 0.01 mol L-1 perchloric acid or acetate buffers (pH 2.8; 3.4).

Key words: Flow-injection analysis / iron(III) / fluoride ion-selective electrode.
