Abstract: Novel molecularly imprinted membranes having dibenzofuran (DBF) recognition were developed and binding properties of DBF were studied using the polysulfone membrane prepared by phase inversion imprinting. Polysulfone (PSf) having a phenyl-sulfone group and DBF template was solublized in dimethyl acetamide (DMAc) and the polymer solution was coagulated in water to prepare porous membranes. After template molecules were extracted from the membranes by washing with methanol, recognition experiments with DBF-imprinted membranes were carried out in methanol solution, water/methanol solution, and water solution for DBF and DBF analogues, dibenzodioxin (DBD), diphenyl ether (DPE), and benzodioxin (BDO). In water, high binding amounts of DBF and DBD were observed in the range of 28-39 mumol/g capacity, but the recognition was very low. Methanol/water media showed high recognition of the imprinted membrane with a low binding capacity of DBF (4.5 mumol/g). These results indicated that nonselective binding occurred in the water media due to a hydrophobic effect. Evidence revealed that membrane recognition in methanol and methanol/water was effective for DBF because of charge transfer (CT) complexation between the donor DBF and acceptor phenyl-sulfone group of PSf. This kind of interaction was very useful for high retention and recognition of DBF as an efficient membrane adsorbent via donor-aceptor CT interaction
