Abstract: In this work a novel, environmental friendly , fast and simple extraction method based on magnetite molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles (MMIPNPS) as a sorbent for measurement of phenol was investigated. The synthesized silicacoated magnetite modified with polymer by using of methacrylic acid (MAA) as a functional monomer and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as across-liker and phenol as the template. Main factors influencing the extraction efficiency including pH, amount of sorbent, time of extraction and type of desorption solvent were optimized. Then for analysis of phenol from extraction solvent, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with ultraviolet (UV) detection on reversed-phase octadecyl silica (C18) column using 0.05 M phosphat buffer– methanol as the mobile phase has been used. Method validations such as linear range, detection limit, precision and extraction recovery were evaluated. Phenol was separated, preconcentrated and determined successfully in spiked sample of wastewaters.
