Abstract: Molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs) of S-timolol were prepared as chiral stationary phases (CSPs) in thin layer chromatography (TLC). The resolution of the enantiomers of some cardiovascular drugs, including propranolol, atenolol, timolol, nadolol, nifedipine and verapamil were investigated on these CSPs. A mobile phase system of either methanol or acetonitrile was used and the effects of acetic acid content of the mobile phases were also investigated. The best resolution was achieved for enantioseparation of propranolol, timolol and atenolol on plates based on MIP of (-)-S-timotol using methacrylic acid as functional monomer (alpha = 1.52, 1.6, 1.59) respectively, using acetonitrile containing 5% acetic acid and (alpha = 1.47, 1.52, 1.5) in methanol containing 1% acetic acid as mobile phases. The results obtained show that TLC based on MIPs could be applied in the direct separation of several P-adrenergic drugs. As the side chains on beta-blockers are similar, it is possible that this method could also be used for the resolution of other racemates in this family of drugs. Racemic drugs structurally related to print molecule, were completely resolved into two spots with the MIP plates. In general the retention of (+)-R-isomers was greater than that of (-)-S- isomers, indicating lower stereoselectivity of the MIPs to the dextrorotatory isomers. The method offers, a rapid, sensitive and reliable method for quality control for these drugs
