Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) is of great attention in biomimetic recognition systems due to its selective molecular recognition towards any guest of interest. In this study, creatinine (Cre) was eluted from MIP via physical means to create the best molecular fitting to Cre. Among the polar eluents, methanol could overcome the intermolecular attractions between Cre and aluminium ion (Al3+) while conserving the Cre-shape memory to optimum with the minimal relaxation of the sol-gel host matrix simultaneously. With regard to the optimised shape complementarity of MIP, the solvation effect was scrutinised to reveal the interactions with Cre and MIP/NIP, respectively. Again, the Cre-adsorption in methanol compromised both the binding magnitude and imprinting factor reasonably the best at 19.48 0.64 mg g-1 and 2.00 0.09, respectively. Nevertheless, MIP was capable of selective uptake of Cre even in the presence of interfering analogues, i.e., creatine (Cr), N-hydroxysuccinimide (N-hyd), and 2-pyrrolidinone (2-pyr), by competitive selectivity coefficients of 3.01 1.11, 3.75 0.57, and 5.24 4.59, respectively. In overall, MIP has proven its feasibility as a selective sorbent in capturing the molecule of interest with good recognition ability
