Abstract: An imprinted thermoresponsive cryogel of copolymer of N-isopropylacrylamide and N-[3-(N,N'-dimethylamino)propyl]acrylamide was synthesized in a frozen (-10 C) aqueous medium in presence of a molecular template, the drug substance ibuprofen. A reversible volume phase transition upon heating (thermotropic collapse) of the swollen cryogel was studied by high-sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry. In the absence of ligands, the transition temperature, enthalpy, and width were 82.5 C, 9.8 J g-1 and 32.2 C, respectively. Significant changes in the transition parameters were observed in presence of the template ligand (ibuprofen): with increasing ligand concentration the transition temperature decreased down to 30 C, the enthalpy passed through a minimum, and the transition width notably reduced. The binding constants of ibuprofen by the cryogel subchains in the collapsed and swollen states were 119 and 5 M-1, respectively. This implies a preferential binding of ibuprofen by the shrunken cryogel. The excess absorption of ibuprofen by the cryogel related to its collapse amounted to 0.327 mmol g-1 while for all other ligands that were structural analogs of ibuprofen this parameter did not exceed 0.016 mmol g-1. Consequently, the imprinted cryogel possessed a selective molecular memory toward the template ligand
