Abstract: Molecularly Imprinted Polymer (MIP) has been synthesized using methacrylate acid (MAA) as a monomer with hydroxyl and carbonyl functional groups that can react with ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as a cross-linking agent, and β-sitosterol as a template molecule. After the template was removed from the polymer, MIP_TFMAA was obtained. The MIP was used to adsorb β-sitosterol. The amount of β-sitosterol in solution after the adsorption was determined by HPLC. The results showed that the MIP was able to adsorb well the β-sitosterol at a pH 7 and the contact time of 90 min. The kinetic adsorption data obtained for β-sitosterol followed the pseudo-second-order model and consistent with the model of Feundlich isothermal with the adsorption capacity of 1.05 mg/g. The MIP was selective on β-sitosterol because it was able to adsorb β-sitosterol better than cholesterol.
