Abstract: In this study, the molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are designed to improve their sensitivity and selectivity for specific aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, and xylene isomers. The MIPs based on methyl acrylate (MA) monomer are prepared using toluene and ethylene glycol dimetacrylate (EGDMA) as a template and a cross linking agent, respectively. The binding sites on the MIPs are characterized by using Fourier transform infrared spectrometry (FT-IR), nitrogen adsorption isotherms, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The selective behaviors of the MIPs are evaluated by their adsorption properties on a gravimetric apparatus. It is found that the performance is strongly influenced by the composition ratios of cross-linker, functional monomer, and template molecule. The molecular recognition ability can be assessed on the basis of an imprinting effect. The results indicate that the prepared MIPs can be used for the aromatic hydrocarbon sensor materials with high sensitivity and selectivity.
