Abstract: A novel molecularly imprinted polymer that could be applied as enrichment sorbent was prepared using methimazole (MMZ) as the template molecule, methacrylic acid as functional monomer, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as cross-linker. Though evaluated by static, kinetic and competitive adsorption tests, the polymer exhibited high adsorption capacity, fast kinetics and good selective ability. A method for determination of trace MMZ was developed using this polymer as enrichment sorbent coupled with high performance liquid chromatography focusing on complex biological matrices. Under the optimum experimental conditions, the MMZ standard is linear within the concentration range studied, that is, from 0.5 μg L-1 to 150 μg L-1 (r2 =0.9941). Lower limits of detection (LOD, at S/N = 3) and quantification (LOQ, at S/N = 10) in pig samples were 0.63 μg kg-1 and 2.10 μg kg-1 for kidney, 0.51 μg kg-1 and 1.70 μg kg-1 for liver, 0.56 μg kg-1 and 1.86 μg kg-1 for muscle, respectively. Recoveries and relative standard deviation (RSD, n = 9) values for precision in the developed method were from 71.14% to 88.41% and from 2.53% to 6.18%
