Abstract: Amperometric sensors for nonelectroactive substances have been obtained by contacting glassy carbon or graphite electrodes with molecularly imprinted polymeric (MIP) membranes, 300-0.6mum thick. The thicker membranes were self standing membranes while the thinner ones were prepared by drop coating on a graphite electrode. Cyanuric acid and atrazine were the target compounds. Determinations were carried out at -850mV (vs. Ag/AgCl(sat)) in aqueous solution at pH1.5, followed by a step at +500. The current linearly depends on the concentration of the template molecule in aqueous solution up to 10-4M. For atrazine the current increases with the concentration, while for cyanuric acid the current intensity decreases. Not any current variation was observed on bare carbon electrodes, nor on electrodes covered with a nonimprinted membrane. The detection limit was 910-7M for atrazine and 210-5M for cyanuric acid. The sensors response was very fast and selective for the corresponding template
