    Abstract

    An enantioselective imprinted polymer was prepared by the surface template polymerization technique. An organophosphorus extractant was effective as a functional host molecule for recognizing a certain amino acid. The imprinted polymer exhibited a high template effect toward L-tryptophan methylester compared to its D-isomer, while a reference polymer prepared without an imprinting molecule did not show any selectivity among the enantiomers.
