Background and Objective: Biological adsorbents under undesirable conditions have not suitable performance. Based on this problem, the using of the molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been proposed. This study was conducted to adsorption of trace triazinic pesticides with synthesis and optimization of molecular imprinted polymers as a novel solid phase extraction (MISPE).

Methods: In this study, atrazine and ametrin polymer and blank were synthesized by central composite design method and optimized based on the amount of functional monomer, template, cross linker, initiator, solvents and polymerization temperature. Then the appropriate cartridge was selected and SPE procedure based on the concentration, sample volume, flow rate and sample pH were optimized with response surface methodology. Concentration factor and as well as reusability of the cartridges were examined finally.

Results: Based on the obtained results, for ametryn and atrazine, optimized temperature was calculated equals to 40.86 °c, 6.41 and 5.03 ml for solvent, 27.070 and 21.32 for crosslinker, 2.03 and 2.27 mmol of initiator, 5.41 and 4.73 mmol for monomer and 1.204 and 0.811 for template respectively. Based on the optimization results of the molecular imprinted solid phase extraction, it was revealed that there are recovery rate over 90 percent for the drinking water and urine as spike.

Conclusion: The results showed that central composite design can be used as a general tool for polymer synthesis and optimization of molecular imprinted solid phase extraction. Polymers according to theirs high-performance and selectivity also can assume an important role in monitoring the work environment.
