Abstract: This study presents data regarding the mass transfer in a new type of nanomaterials: molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). MIPs are polymers with very high affinity for the substance used for their imprinting (called template). The preparation technique of MIP pearls is new and a mass transfer study inside these new materials is imperative. Adsorption isotherms were obtained experimentally for MIP pearls and for the corresponding NIP (non-imprinted polymer) in different conditions of temperature, solvent flow and initial concentration. The obtained curves were fitted, as incipient study, with a function that characterizes the dose response in pharmaceutics and chemistry.
