Abstract: Molecular imprinting is an attractive technique for preparing mimics of natural and biological receptors. Nevertheless, molecular imprinting for aqueous systems remains a challenge due to the hydrogen bonding between templates and functional monomers destroyed in the bulk water. The hydrogen bonding between templates and monomers are the most crucial factor governing recognition, particularly in non-covalent molecularly imprinted polymers. Using mesoporous materials for molecular imprinting is an effective approach to overcome this barrier and to remove the limitations of the traditional molecularly imprinted polymers which include incomplete template removal, small binding capacity, slow mass transfer, and irregular materials shape. Here, SBA-15 was used as a mesoporous silica material for synthesis of molecularly imprinted polypyrrole. The pyrrole monomers and template molecules were immobilized onto the SBA-15 hexagonal channels, and then polymerization occurred. The resulting nanocomposites were characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) methods. In batch rebinding tests, the imprinted nanocomposites reached saturated adsorption within 100 min and exhibited significant specific recognition toward the ascorbic acid (AA) with high adsorption capacity (83.7 mg g-1). To further illustrate the recognition property of the imprinted nanocomposites, binary competitive and non-competitive adsorption experiments were performed with ascorbic acid, dopamine, paracetamol and epinephrine. The imprinting factors for these compounds in non-competitive adsorption experiments were 3.2, 1.5, 1.4 and 1.3, respectively. The results showed that the imprinted nanocomposites exhibited significant adsorption selectivity for the ascorbic acid against the related compounds
