Abstract: Uniformly sized molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for nimodipine have been prepared in an aqueous system by multi-step swelling and polymerization method, utilizing 4-vinylpyridine (4-VPY) or methacrylic acid (MAA) as a functional monomer, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EDMA) as a cross-linking agent. Scanning electron microscopy was used to identify the structure features of the obtained polymers. Further, the influences of some chromatographic conditions were examined to explore the possible recognition mechanism. The results reveal that stable molecularly imprinted polymeric microspheres with good size monodispersity were obtained, and the polymer beads showed specific recognition for the template molecule and some other dihydropyridine calcium antagonists (DHPs). Besides hydrophobic interaction, the molecular shape complementation of DHPs and the MIPs seems to play an important role in the retention and recognition of DHPs. The Scatchard analysis showed that two kinds of binding sites existed in the MIPs. The MIPs was then used as a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) separation medium to simultaneously concentrate and purify nimodipine in plasma. The results reveal that the obtained MIPs could be used for on-line concentration, purification, and measurement of nimodipine in biological samples. 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
