The creation of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for the recognition of phosphate and phosphonate esters is reported. The single, weak hydrogen-bond acceptor site in these molecules has been targeted using a 1,3-diarylurea functional monomer. Polymers were prepared using either stoichiometric ratios of functional monomer to template or a large excess of the template during imprinting. The recognition properties of the polymers were assessed in the chromatographic mode for their ability to retain the templates and analogous analytes. The results are discussed with regards to the choice and amount of template, polymerisation conditions and the composition of the chromatographic mobile phase.
