Matrine (MT)- and oxymatrine (OMT)-imprinted monodisperse polymers have been prepared by precipitation polymerization. The prepared molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for MT and OMT, MIP(MT) and MIP(OMT), were monodispersed microspheres of 3.3 and 3.9 μm in diameter, respectively. Binding experiments and Scatchard analyses revealed that two classes of binding sites were formed on MIP(MT) and MIP(OMT). In addition to shape recognition, ionic and hydrophobic interactions seemed to affect the… CONTINUE READING
