Abstract: Biomedical applications of antioxidants have increased dramatically since the link between human diseases and oxidative stress was established. This paper focuses on + -tocopherol and on the possibility of employing molecularly imprinted polymers as a controlled release device for + -tocopherol in gastrointestinal simulating fluids. Polymers were synthesized using methacrylic acid as functional monomer and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as cross-linker. Considerable differences in recognition characteristics between imprinted and non-imprinted polymers, both in organic and in aqueous media, were observed. Imprinted polymers bound much more + -tocopherol and showed a controlled/sustained drug release capacity in gastrointestinal simulating fluids
Template and target information: α-tocopherol, vitamin E
