Abstract: Cross-linked poly(methylmethacrylate-co-methacrylic acid) nanospheres were imprinted with theophylline through template radical polymerisation in diluted acetonitrile solution. This study will focus on the effect of functional monomer nature used (methylmethacrylate and/or methacrylic acid) in the recognition and in the release of template in order to develop a material with combined properties of drug delivery and rebinding for clinical applications. After template extraction the nanospheres showed satisfactory recognition properties (up to 1 mg template/g of polymer). Moreover polymers prepared selectively removed theophylline with a theophylline rebinding of 5.1 times higher than that of caffeine, a compound of similar structure. Drug release properties were also satisfactory (up to 95% of loaded theophylline in 7 days)
