Abstract

Molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) based on acrylate monomer was prepared at 80°C for 5 hours using p-xylene and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as a template and crosslinking agent, respectively. The polymer obtained was washed with a mixture of acetic acid and methanol (1:4) and dried in the vacuum oven at 80°C. FTIR spectrum showed that all the templates were leached out from polymer during excessive washing and drying stage. The rebinding test result showed that the MIP was bonded with the analyte in the presence of organic solvents as shown by FTIR spectroscopy. The SEM micrograph showed that non-imprinted polymer (NIP) had no cavity as compared MIP.
