Abstract: A molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) membrane for atrazine, not containing macropores, was synthesized and implemented in a potentiometric sensor. It is expected to work like a solid ISE (where the specific carrier are the imprinted sites) the specific carrier being the imprinted site. The active ion is the protonated atrazine, positively charged. To form this species the determination is carried out in acidic solution at pH lower than 1.8, in which atrazine is prevalently monoprotonated. At these conditions the membrane potential increases with atrazine concentration over a wide concentration range (3 x 10-5 to 1 x 10-3 M). The slope of the function E versus log c is about 25 mV/decade, showing that the atrazine form sorbed on MIP is the biprotonated one. The detection limit is determined by the relatively high concentration of atrazine released by the membrane in the sample solution at the considered conditions. It seems to be independent of the atrazine concentration in the internal solution of the sensor, but it depends on the acidity of the solution. The response time is less than 10 s and the sensor can be used for more than 2 months without any divergence
