Abstract: Molecularly imprinted poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) microspheres (PHEMA MIPMs) were prepared via precipitation polymerization in this article, using gatifloxacin (GFLX), hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as template molecule, functional monomer and cross-linker, respectively. The effects of reaction medium, initial total monomers, cross-linker and molecular imprinting on the polymerization were investigated systematically. The interaction between GFLX and HEMA in pre-solution was studied by UV-Visible spectrophotometer, both size and morphology of products were characterized by a scanning electron microscope. When the total initial monomer concentration was 1 vol%, EGDMA content was 70 mol%, a group of uniform PHEMA MIPMs were prepared at different GFLX/MAA molar ratios, with diameter range from 2.06 0.07 to 2.82 0.20 μm. The results of drug loading and in vitro release experiments demonstrated that PHEMA MIPMs could achieve a higher GFLX loading content and a more acceptable sustained release than non-imprinted ones
