Abstract: A novel water-compatible surface-imprinted core-shell microsphere, which had multiple non-covalent interactions with template molecule, was successfully prepared by the surface grafting polymerization method in acetonitrile-water systems with thymopentin as template through ionic liquid-functionalized polyethyleneglycolmethacrylate-co-vinylimidazole microsphere as the matrix. The average diameter of matrix was 1 μm 20 nm and the thickness of imprinted layer was about 50 nm. The results of static adsorption experiments indicated that ionic liquid-functionalized molecularly imprinted microspheres showed the good adsorption capacity and specific recognition for template peptide. The binding-isotherm analysis showed that Langmuir isotherm models gave a good fit in the range of concentrations, suggesting that there was only one kind of binding site in imprinted layer. Measurements of the binding kinetics revealed that surface-imprinted composite microspheres reached peptide-adsorption equilibrium in 60 min and the maximum adsorption capacity for TP5 was 38.4 mg g-1. The effects of pH, salt concentration, and temperature on the adsorption capacities were investigated. The microspheres were found to have a high specificity for TP5 with little affinity for BSA and Hb. Finally, the core-shell microspheres can be reused with only 15.6 % decrease in TP5 adsorption capacity after six times
