Abstract: A new molecularly imprinted copolymer of 2-hydroxy ethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and beta-cyclodextrin-coupled HEMA is synthesized. The copolymer is studied for its interaction with a pair of steroids, namely, cholesterol and testosterone. The molecularly imprinted copolymer is found to absorb the print molecule by several fold compared to an imprinted poly(HEMA). The enhanced absorption capacity is attributed to the presence of beta cyclodextrin moieties in the copolymer. The imprinted copolymer could be used as an adsorbent matrix.
