The Teflon membrane is partially permeable and allows gas to pass through. This means that ammonia gas can pass through the membrane and react with the solution, being converted to ammonium by the basic solution. This reaction between the high pH solution and the ammonia gas reduces the pH of the solution surrounding the pH probe, creating a readable voltage directly proportional to the ammonia concentration.
