Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were grafted on iniferter-modified carbon nanotube (CNT). Tween 20 was first immobilized on CNT by hydrophobic interactions. The hydroxyl-functionalized CNT was modified by silanisation with 3-chloropropyl trimethoxysilane. The iniferter groups were then introduced by reacting the CNT-bound chloropropyl groups with sodium N,N-diethyldithiocarbamate. UV light-initiated copolymerization of ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (crosslinking agent) and methacrylic acid (functional monomer) resulted in grafting of MIP on CNT for theophylline as a model template. MIPs grafted on CNT were characterized with elemental analysis, scanning electron microscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis. The theophylline-imprinted polymer on CNT showed higher binding capacity for theophylline than non-imprinted polymer on CNT and selectivity for theophylline over caffeine and theobromine (similar structure molecules). The data of theophylline and caffeine binding into the theophylline-imprinted polymer correlated well with the Scatchard plot. These MIPs on CNT can potentially be applied to probe materials in biosensor system based on CNT field effect transistor
