Abstract: In this study, it has targeted determination of 4-Nitrophenol (4-NP), which is a toxic and carcinogenic compound at high selectivity. For this purpose, firstly molecularly imprinted nanoparticles was synthesis by mini-emulsion polymerization by using 4-NF as template. Then nanofiber systems containing 4-NP imprinted nanoparticles have been developed by electrospinning technology. 4-NP imprinted nanoparticles containing nanofiber systems is coated onto Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) electrode. The electrode was used for determination of 4-NF from aqueous solution. Scatchard, Langmuir, Freundlich and Temkin adsorption models were applied to describe the adsorption isotherms.
