Abstract: In the present study, the antibiotic drug Amikacin has been used as template molecule to prepare poly(methacrylic acid) based molecularly imprinting polymer using acetonitrile (Acn) as a porogenic solvent. The polymer has been characterized by FTIR, SEM analysis. The poly(MAAc) MIP has been used for effective and selective removal of Amikacin (Amk) in batch mode process. The equilibrium uptake data was fitted to various isotherm models namely, Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin and Dubinin-Redushkevich (RD). Based on the regression values obtained, the order of fitness was DR>Freundlich>Temkin>Langmuir. The maximum adsorption capacity (Qo), as determined using Langmuir plot was 60.60 mg/g at 30 C. The presence of the drugs Streptomycin and Gentamycin in the solution did not affect the adsorption capacity of MIP. Finally, the adsorption capacity was found to be independent of the temperature of the adsorption system
