Abstract: A covalent interaction-based molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) material for 3-chloro-1,2-propanediol (3-MCPD), a post- testicular anti-fertility agent and possible carcinogen and mutagen in food products containing acid-hydrolyzed vegetable proteins, has been successfully fabricated using 4- vinylphenylboronic acid as the functional monomer. Rebinding assay revealed that the binding constant, K-B, for the receptor sites and non-specific sites are 1.93 +/- 0.1 X 10(4) and 2.74 +/- 0.7 x 10(2) M-1, respectively. The estimated number of receptor site, B-max, imprinted is 123.3 +/- 3 mumol/g of MIR The MIP material is able to act as a potentiometric chemosensor for 3-MCPD via increase in Lewis acidity of the receptor sites upon reaction of the arylboronic acid with 3-MCPD to form the more acidic arylboronic acid esters. A simple pH glass electrode is sufficient to monitor the analyte-specific rebinding. In unbuffered aqueous media, linear potentiometric response from 0 to 350 ppm of 3-MCPD can be achieved. The MIP- based chemosensing in a soya sauce matrix has also been attempted. It is found that the dynamic range of the potentiometric chemosensing response of the MIP material is much reduced, probably due to the blocking or deactivation of receptor sites by interferents in soya sauces. Nevertheless, the present work demonstrated the feasibility of using MIP- based chemosensors as semi-quantitative analytical tools for screening purposes in quality control of food products.
