Abstract: Highly selective molecularly imprinted layer-coated silica nanoparticles for paclitaxel were synthesized by molecular imprinting technique with a sol–gel process on the supporter of silica nanoparticles. The morphology of the obtained polymers was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The binding properties of the imprinted polymers were evaluated through the equilibrium rebinding experiments. Scatchard analysis revealed that two classes of binding sites were formed in the imprinted polymers with equilibrium dissociation constants of 0.0509 g L-1 and 0.0094 g L-1, respectively. Paclitaxel and its analogue were employed for selectivity tests. The results indicated that the imprinted polymers exhibited good selectivity and specificity toward paclitaxel.
