Abstract.

Molecularly imprinted polymers for indoleacetic acid were prepared by co-polymerizing N,N-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate. The dependence of the affinity and selectivity of the imprinted polymers on HEMA content was evaluated chromatographically. The affinity was improved by increasing the HEMA content; the selectivity of the imprinted polymer was best when the HEMA content was approximately 30%, irrespective of monomer content.
