Receptor binding mimetics: a novel molecularly imprinted polymer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A novel molecularly imprinted polymer was prepared by copolymerization of trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate (1) and methacrylic acid (3) in the presence of a dipeptide acting as the template. The recognition capability of the synthetic receptor-like binding sites produced in the polymer network for the peptide was demonstrated by using the polymer as a chiral stationary phase in HPLC. The polymer was superior to previously reported molecularly imprinted polymers in that unusually high racemic resolution and load capacity were demonstrated.
