Abstract: Atrazine imprinted synthetic polymers were prepared using a combination of methacrylic acid and 2-sulfoethyl methacrylate that bound and converted atrazine and other 6-chlorotriazine herbicides to less toxic compounds. A chloride at the 6- position of the triazines was converted to a methoxy group by the polymer in a methanol-containing solvent, where the imprinting effects enhanced the catalytic activity. Competitive inhibition of the atrazine methanolysis was observed in the presence of a structurally related binder, ametryn, suggesting that the catalytic reaction proceeded in the binding sites generated by the molecular imprinting process
