Tools for fluorescent molecularly imprinted polymers

Daniel L. Rathbone, Ajeet Bains

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A linear co-polymer of hexyl acrylate and quinine acrylate was prepared anchored to cellulose filtration membranes. These were used to probe quenching of the tethered fluorophore by test compounds in solution for the validation of imprinted polymer fluorescence studies. The results are compared with simple solution phase quenching studies and also for two membrane-bound imprinted polymers containing the same fluorophore. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
