Abstract: A new approach is reported on the use of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM)-coated molecularly imprinted beads (coated MIP beads) for controlling the release of protein. The coated MIP beads were composed of double layers, an internal thermosensitive lysozyme-imprinted layer, and an external PNIPAM layer. The coated MIP beads were prepared by two-step surface-initiated living-radical polymerization (SIP). In this systemic study, the coated MIP beads had good selectivity to the template protein (lysozyme) and temperature stimulus-responsive behavior, both of which were superior to those of MIP beads having a layer of thermosensitive lysozyme-imprinted polymer only. Using the coated MIP beads, reference proteins and the template lysozyme could be released separately at 38 C and at 23C. The corresponding coated non-imprinted beads (coated NIP beads) did not have such double thermosensitive gates with specific selectivity for a particular protein. The proposed smart controlled imprinted system for protein is attractive for chemical carriers, drug-delivery system, and sensors
