Molecular imprinting technology (MIT) concerns formation of selective sites in a polymer matrix with the memory of a template. Recently, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have aroused extensive attention and been widely applied in many fields, such as solid-phase extraction, chemical sensors and artificial antibodies owing to their desired selectivity,(More)
Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) with trinitrophenol (TNP) as a dummy template molecule capped with CdTe quantum dots (QDs) were prepared using 3-aminopropyltriethoxy silane (APTES) as the functional monomer and tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) as the cross linker through a seed-growth method via a sol-gel process (i.e., DMIP@QDs) for the sensing of(More)
Molecularly imprinted polymer coated quantum dot (MIP@QD) fluorescence sensors combined with ratiometric fluorescence techniques and mesoporous silica materials have been applied to detect TNT for the first time. The assay platform exhibited excellent selectivity and sensitivity with a detection limit as low as 15 nM.
Controlled/living free radical polymerization (CLRP) has been accepted as an effective technique in preparation of polymers because of its inherent advantages over traditional free radical polymerization. In this work, reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization, the ideal candidate for CLRP, was applied to prepare atrazine(More)
A method of solid-phase extraction (SPE) using molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) as adsorbent coupled with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was developed for the determination of 16 types of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in seawater samples. The MIPs were prepared through non-covalent polymerization by using the 16 PAHs mixture as(More)
A novel functional monomer T-IPTS, 3-isocyanatopropyltriethoxysilane (IPTS) bearing thymine (T) bases, was synthesized for imprinting Hg(2+). Then a novel Hg(2+) ionic imprinted polymers (IIPs) based on thymine-Hg(2+)-thymine (T-Hg(2+)-T) interactions, i.e. Hg-IIPs-T, were prepared by sol-gel process for the first time in this work. The Hg-IIPs-T exhibited(More)
A facile strategy was developed to prepare mesoporous structured ratiometric fluorescence molecularly imprinted sensor for highly sensitive and selective determination of melamine using CdTe QDs as target sensitive dye and hematoporphyrin as reference dyes. One-pot synthesis method was employed because it could simplify the imprinting process and shorten(More)
Construction of ratiometric fluorescent probe often involved in tedious multistep preparation or complicated coupling or chemical modification process. The emergence of dual emission fluorescent nanoparticles would simplify the construction process and avoids the tedious chemical coupling. Herein, we reported a facile strategy to prepare ratiometric(More)
A simple and sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of four triazines from soil, strawberry, and tomato samples was developed by selective molecularly imprinted matrix solid-phase dispersion (MI-MSPD) coupled to micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC). Using atrazine as template, the synthesized molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were(More)
