Abstract: Ephedrine-imprinted polymeric microspheres have been prepared in an aqueous system by multi-step swelling and suspension polymerization, using methacrylic acid (MAA) as a functional monomer, and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as a cross-linker. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used as a means to identify the structure features of the obtained polymers. Further, we examined the recognition mechanism of the polymers and the influences of some chromatographic conditions, such as the mobile-phase composition, flow-rate, column temperature and sample amount on the retentivity and selectivity for (-)-ephedrine and (+)-ephedrine. The results reveal that stable macroporous polymer beads with good size monodispersity were obtained, the average size of which was 3 - 5 μm. Baseline chiral separation of the template isomers was achieved on a short column (50 mm x 4.6 mm i.d.) when the prepared polymer beads were used as a stationary phase, while the non-imprinted polymers (NIPS) did not show such ability. The optimized chromatographic condition was as follows: acetonitrile-acetic acid (99.8/0.2, v/v) as the mobile phase; sample amount, 40 - 80 mu g; flow rate, 1.0 ml min(-1); and column temperature, room temperature, respectively. It is assumed that two classes of binding sites exist in the porous polymers, one being hydrophilic binding sites, the other being hydrophobic binding sites
