Abstract: Molecular imprinted polymers were synthesized using α-methylacrylacid as monomer, acetylsalicylic acid as template. Polyethylene glycol dimethylacrylate was taken as cross-linker. UV-Vis spectrophotometer was used to detect the drug-loading and releasing performances of these polymers. The studies showed that the imprinted polymers could load more drugs than non-imprinted polymer, and exhibited a slower drug-releasing rate than the latter at pH 7.4. The content of cross-linker had influences on drug-loading amounts. The imprinted polymer released few drugs at the buffer solution of pH 1.2.
