Group description:
Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are utilized in the separation of a pure compound from complex matrices. A stable template-monomer complex generates MIPs with the highest affinity and selectivity for the template. In this investigation, degradation of Poly(ethylene terephthalate) PET afforded the (E)-4-(2-cyano-3-(dimethylamino) acryloyl) benzoic acid (4) (TAM) which used TAM as template which interacts with Methacrylic Acid (MAA) monomer, in the presence of CH3CN as progen. The TAM-MMA complex interactions are dependent on stable hydrogen bonding interaction between the carboxylic acid group of TAM and the hydroxyl group of MMA with minimal interference of porogen CH3CN. The DFT/B3LYP/6-31+G model chemistry was used to optimize their structures and frequency calculations. The binding energies between TAM with different monomers showed the most stable molar ratio of 1:4 which was confirmed through experimental analysis.
