A novel synthetic method for the preparation of magnetic molecularly imprinted polymer (MMIP) particles is presented. Magnetic moulding particles with supporting framework and large inner space were first prepared by suspension polymerization. MMIP particles were synthesized in situ by polymerizing imprinted polymers within the inner space of moulding particles. The resulting MMIP particles possessed high affinity to template molecules and excellent selectivity of similar substrates in terms of their chemical structures. These MMIP particles could be handled easily and separated rapidly under a magnetic field.
