A molecularly imprinted poly-metharylic acid (PMAA), polymerizing on the surface of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT), was synthesized. The MWCNT was modified by a layer of carboxylic acid and reacted with EDC and NHS to activate the carboxylic acid, which was prepared for the purpose of bonding allyl amine and getting an unsaturated side chain (-C=C). The resultant structure is abbreviated as MWCNTs-CH=CH2. It is well known that the vinyl group side chain provides good attachment between the MWCNTs and the molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP). The MIP based on PMAA was polymerized on the surface of MWCNTs-CH=CH 2 with the addition of uric acid (UA). The non-imprinted polymer (NIP) was polymerized without adding UA. The adsorbed amount of UA approached the equilibrium value upon 60 min adsorption. The adsorption isotherm was obtained by immersing 10 mg of MIP or NIP in 5 mL aqueous solution containing different concentrations of UA. The adsorbed amounts were measured via a UV-Vis spectrometer at a wavelength of 292 nm. From the adsorption isotherm, it is seen that the MIP particles possess a good imprinting efficiency of about 4.41.
