Abstract: Nylon 6 nanofibers incorporated with molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were successfully fabricated by electrospinning with fiber diameters in the range 80-145 nm. Then, they were used as a new material for the extraction of selected bisphenol A (BPA) in water samples. Field emission scanning electron microscopy images revealed that the nanofibers had a smooth morphology with a good incorporation of MIPs. The Fourier transform infrared and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy results also confirmed the formation of the MIPs in the nanofibers. Furthermore, Raman spectroscopy showed that the crystalline structure of the pristine nylon 6 nanofiber was a kind of α form, and the incorporation of MIPs led to a γ-form structure in the nanofibers; this proved the interactions between nylon 6 and the MIPs. Adsorption studies also confirmed that the adsorption efficiency of BPA onto the molecularly imprinted polymer nanofibers (MIP-NFs; 83.5%) was much greater than that onto nonimprinted polymer nanofibers (NIP-NFs; 36.8%). Also, the imprinting factor was 3.4; this strongly implied the successful formation of molecularly imprinted cavities on the MIP-NFs with a strong affinity to BPA. The maximum adsorption capacity of the MIP-NFs was 103.8 mg/g. 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl. Polym. Sci. 2018, 135, 47112
