Porous thin films with memory for imprinted metals have been prepared by casting water-THF mixed solutions of a poly(vinyl chloride-co-acrylic acid) / poly(propylene glycol) blend. When Cu2+ and Pb2+ ions are imprinted in the cast process, the films retain a memory for the original Cu2+ and Pb2+ ions. The imprinting processes can be thoroughly monitored by FT-IR spectroscopy.
