Abstract: Nanometer-sized semiconductor quantum dots (QDs with CdSe core and ZnS shell) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs with multi-walls) were encapsulated inside a stainless steel syringe needle by electrodeposition of polypyrrole (PPy). By cross-linking the PPy with ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) in the presence of ochratoxin A (OTA) as a template, molecularly imprinted polypyrrole (MIPPy) was formed on the nano-hybrid structure at an increased specific surface area. The MIPPy/CNTs/QDs-modified needle was readily adapted in an autosampler for micro-solid phase preconcentration (μSPP) of OTA from a red wine sample. After pulsed elution (PE) with 2% triethylamine (TEA), the OTA was determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with fluorescence detection (FD). In comparison with MIPPy/CNTs, this new nano-hybrid structure of MIPPy/CNTs/QDs significantly improved the % recovery of OTA. The method, MIPPy/CNTs/QDs-μSPP-HPLC-FD, demonstrated that the MIPPy was truly a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) with specific recognition for OTA. All red wine matrix components could be differentially washed out, prior to accurate determination of the strongly bound OTA
