Abstract: A novel molecular imprinting polymer (MIP)-based electrochemical senor, consisting of Fe3O4 nanobeads and gold nanoparticles on a reduced graphene oxide (RGO) substrate, was fabricated to detect ractopamine (RAC) in water using the reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization technique. The Au nanoparticles widely dispersed on RGO can significantly increase the response current for RAC detection in water, which is confirmed by cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and theoretical calculations. By means of the differential pulse voltammetry technique, the as-prepared MIP-based electrode shows a dynamic linear range of 0.002 to 0.1 μM with a correlation coefficient of 0.992 and a remarkably low detection limit of 0.02 nM (S/N = 3). Additionally, the sensor exhibits high binding affinity and selectivity towards RAC with excellent reproducibility. Our study demonstrates the potential for the proposed electrochemical sensors in monitoring organic pollutants in water
