Abstract

Porphyrin-based molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were prepared for carbohydrate recognition. A urea-appended porphyrin functional monomer was utilized to provide complementary functionality and quality binding sites throughout the polymer. Each porphyrin-based polymer demonstrates high affinity and differential selectivity for closely related carbohydrates that correlate to the structure of the template used in the imprinting process.
