Abstract: This article presents an original work aiming at kinetically surveying the substrate-selective mechanism from a molecularly imprinted polymer.With Bisphenol A(BPA) as the template, the imprinted polymer was prepared. The result indicates that the imprinted polymer presents a much more complicated sorption toward the template than toward its analogue. The rate constant in the case of the template appears to be a function of coverage degree. There are also significant deviations from the idealized Langmuir model. Related information indicates that these logically can be a result from the induced molecular memory within the binding framework, which makes the polymer capable of selectively adsorbing the imprint species.
