Abstract: Surface protein imprinting over nano- or micron-sized substrates is an effective approach for improving the biomacromolecule mass transfer and rebinding capacity. For achieving high recognition performance, it is necessary to introduce certain functional groups onto the surface of the support materials which can interact with the template protein. Herein, we report a surface protein imprinting approach using a new kind of core-shell magnetic chitosan submicrospheres as the supports. The surface of these magnetic chitosan particles is tethered with uncross-linked chitosan chains, hence bearing plenty of amino and hydroxyl groups, where a large amount of functional ligands can be readily coupled for capturing of the protein template. With lysozyme as a model print protein, the magnetic supports were functionalized with maleic acid and then coated with imprinted polymer layers. The resulting imprinted microspheres show significantly selective rebinding for lysozyme. In particular, they exhibit a specific rebinding capacity about three times higher than achieved with our previous lysozyme-imprinted particles synthesized in similar way but with maleic acid modified silica nanoparticles as the supports. This can be attributed to the much higher template binding capacity to the modified magnetic chitosan submicrospheres. Also, the resultant imprinted particles can be easily collected by a magnet. Therefore, such kind of chitosan submicrospheres may be a versatile carrier for constructing high-capacity and magnetically recyclable surface protein-imprinted particles
