Abstract: A molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) was rationally synthesized with the aid of computer based studies. The computational studies were used to screen for the most suitable template to functional monomer molar ratio. Two functional monomers were involved in the study (methacrylic acid and 4-vinylpyridine). Four MIP ratios were synthesized in accordance with the results of the computational studies and their performance was evaluated using equilibrium rebinding assays. The MIP with the best performance was used as an additive in carbon paste electrodes for the voltammetric determination of valaciclovir (VCV). Following the optimization of voltammetric parameters, a linear response was obtained in the range of 1.0 x 10-6 - 7.0 x 10-4 M with a limit of detection at 4.45 x 10-7 M. The MIP modified carbon paste electrode was successfully applied for the determination of VCV in pure solutions and dosage form
