Molecularly imprinted TiO2 nanofilms were prepared by spin coating, and the influence of template/matrix precursor ratio was examined. The imprinted films including 10 to 40 times matrix precursor, Ti(O- nBu)4, provided efficient and selective binding as compared to those of low matrix precursor ratios. The highest binding and selectivity were observed by a TiO2 film imprinted with 5 m M AzoCO2H and 100 mM Ti(O-nBu)4, with template selectivities of 1.6 and 2.1 against 2-AnCO2H- and 9-AnCO 2H-imprinted films, respectively.
