Abstract: Bulk polymerization method was used to prepare a homogeneous molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) for the specific extraction of herbicide mecoprop (MCPP). Thereafter, the binding performance of this functional polymer was evaluated under optimal condition, compared to a non-imprinted polymer. From the Scatchard plot analysis, two types of binding sites were detected in the MIP, the high affinity binding sites with a KD (equilibrium dissociation constant) of 6.4 μM and the low affinity ones with a KD of 55.9 μM. In addition, the possibility of using synthesized MIP for MCPP extraction from environmental aqueous samples was explored. The adsorption capacity of MIP in spiked bottled water and groundwater samples showed that the polymer could effectively extract MCPP from bottled water and groundwater (p < 0.05) with the recovery of 70.5% and 65.1%, respectively, demonstrating the potential of imprinted polymers for cost-effective and effective water treatment
