Solvent-free synthesis of chiral molecularly imprinted polymers: Porosity control using a nano-sized solid porogen.
Publication date: 2016
Journal: Journal of Applied Polymer Science
Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been synthesized in the absence of a solvent using fumed silica nanoparticles to create a porous network. The method employed led to a chiral imprinting effect and allowed for an excellent control over the internal morphology of imprinted and non-imprinted polymer (NIP) materials. The polymers possess high surface areas (>300 m2) and identical pore size (112 Å). The MIP exhibited an imprinting factor (IF) of 9 and a selectivity value (α) of 1.83 for (-)-ephedrine. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl. Polym. Sci. 2016, 133, 44104
