Abstract: Novel magnetic and hydrophilic molecularly imprinted polymers (mag-MIPs) were prepared by an inverse emulsion-suspension polymerization to remove water-soluble acid dyes from contaminated water with 1-(α-methyl acrylate)-3-methylimidazolium bromide (1-MA-3MI-Br) being utilized as a new functional monomer. The thermal stability, chemical structure and magnetic property of the 1-MA-3MI-Br-mag-MIPs were characterized by the thermal-gravimetric analyzer (TGA), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), respectively. Moreover, effect of concentration and pH value of water-soluble acid dye solutions was optimized. Compared with the methyl acrylic acid and 4-vinylpyridine modified mag-MIPs, the 1-MA-3MI-Br-mag-MIPs showed enhanced removal efficiency. Kinetic studies depicted that the adsorption process on 1-MA-3MI-Br-mag-MIPs followed pseudo-second-order rate mechanism. Investigation results of 5 times removal-regeneration cycles by employing the 1-MA-3MI-Br-mag-MIPs showed that the resulting material was with high stability.
