Abstract: A magnetic molecularly imprinted polymer (MMIP) adsorbent for imidacloprid was prepared using non-covalent approach with functionalized nano Fe3O4 particles (magnetic cores), imidacloprid (template), acrylic acid (functional monomer), ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (cross linker) and azobisisobutyronitrile (initiator) and used for selective separation of imidacloprid from honey and vegetable samples. The polymers were characterized using FT-IR spectroscopy, SEM and TEM images. For analysis of imidacloprid LC-MS/MS equipment was used. Adsorption kinetics was best explained by pseudo-second-order kinetic model. Adsorption data fitted well into linearized Freundlich equation (R2 > 0.98). Scatchard plot analysis indicates the presence of two classes of binding sites in the MMIPs with the Cmax of 1889.6 μg g-1 and 65448.9 μg g-1, respectively. MMIPs demonstrated much higher affinity for imidacloprid over structurally similar analogues acetamiprid (α = 23.59) and thiamethoxam (α = 17.15). About 87.1 5.0% and 90.6 5.6% of the added imidacloprid was recovered from MMIPs in case of fortified eggplant and honey samples, respectively
