Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were synthesized by in situ polymerization using L-epicatechin as the template molecule, acrylamide(AM) as the functional monomer, azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as the initiator, and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as the cross-linking agent. Firstly, the specific adsorption capacity of L-epicatechin MIPs was evaluated as a function of the proportions of template molecule, functional monomer, and cross-linking agent. The results showed that when the molar ratio of L-epicatechin to acrylamide to ethylene glycol dimethacrylate was 1:6:40, MIPs exhibited the best adsorption capacity, with template molecule recovery (KMIPs) of 84.62% and specific recognition factor (Q) of 4.55. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) were used to characterize the MIPs. Finally, we used capillary electrophoresis to detect the effluent and the eluate under optimum conditions. As a result, a molecularly imprinted solid phase extraction-capillary electrophoresis (MISPE-CE) method for the determination of L-epicatechin was developed. The experimental results showed that molecularly imprinted polymers were successfully synthesized with good morphology and specific adsorption characteristics. This method is feasible for the analysis of L-epicatechin in Liubao tea.
