Abstract: Molecular surface-imprinted polymers nanoparticles encapsulating magnetite modified with oleic acid, for recognition of salicylic acid was prepared by three-step miniemulsion polymerization. The important factors including polymerization process, solvents, miniemulsifying approaches, and co-stabilizer have been investigated to obtain magnetic molecular imprinting polymers (MMIPs) nanoparticles (NPs) with high saturation magnetization (Ms), regular morphology, and good monodispersion. The results showed that the amount of magnetite encapsulated in MMIPs NPs was 43.4 wt% and Ms was 33.584 emu/g. Thus, MMIPs NPs could be separated easily within 2 minutes by an external magnetic field. The transmission electron microscope (TEM) showed MMIPs NPs were of regular sphere with core-shell structure, where magnetite NPs were uniformly encapsulated in homogeneous polymer shells. The average diameter of MMIPs NPs was 98 nm with RSD of 6.6%. Good recognition and high loading of target molecule were achieved by MMIPs NPs in batch rebinding tests
