Plastic Antibodies: Molecular Recognition with Imprinted Polymers
Rushton, Gregory T.; Furmanski, Brian; Shimizu, Ken D.
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n9 p1374-1377 Sep 2005
Synthetic polymers are prepared and tested in a study for their molecular recognition properties of an adenine derivative, ethyl adenine-9-acetate (EA9A), within two laboratory periods. The procedure introduces undergraduate chemistry students to noncovalent molecular imprinting as well as the analytical techniques for assessing their recognition characteristics.
