Abstract: Molecular imprinting membranes of theophylline (THO) were prepared by phase inversion with poly-(acrylonitrile-co-acrylic acid) (P(AN-co- AA)). The copolymer-dimethyl sulfoxide solution with THO template was coagulated in water at various temperatures. It was found that the decrease of coagulation temperature caused an increase in THO binding to the THO-imprinted sites of the resultant membrane. The results for the H-1-NMR of the membrane before template extraction showed that the template amount in the membrane coagulated at 10 degrees C is higher than that at 40 degrees C. The IR analysis of P(AN-co-AA) membranes indicated that the effective binding of THO is due to hydrogen bonds between the THO and OH group of nondimerized carboxylic acid segments. For caffeine, which is structurally close to the THO template, less effective binding to the membranes was obtained. It was discussed that the high binding selectivity of THO solute to the copolymer membrane arises from the formation of the imprinted sites, which consist of free OH group of carboxylic acid segments for hydrogen bonds with the substrate
