Sythesis of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for the Binding and Recognition of Nonylphenol
In this paper, molecularly imprinted polymers with high selectivity for nonylphenol (NP) were synthesized by sol-gel process using 4-vinylpyridine (4-Vpy) as functional monomer, ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate as crosslinker (EGDMA), azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as initiator, NP as template molecules. The performance of imprinted material was evaluated by adsorption kinetic, adsorption isotherm and adsorption selectivity. The results indicated that this material had not only binding properties but also high selectivity to the template molecule, which had good application prospects in the selective enrichment and separation of NP for pretreatment and analysis of complex environmental samples.
