Preparation of terbutylazine imprinted polymer microspheres using viscous polymerization solvents.

Spherical micron sized terbutylazine imprinted polymers have been obtained by copolymerization of acrylates in solvent mixtures containing a highly viscous ('oil') component. The new method requires much less organic solvent than precipitation polymerization to produce spherical MIP particles. Different proportions of oil have been used to clarify its role… CONTINUE READING
