PILAU, Eduardo J.; SILVA, Raquel G. C.; JARDIM, Isabel C. F. S.  y  AUGUSTO, Fabio. Molecularly imprinted sol-gel silica for solid phase extraction of phenobarbital. J. Braz. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.6, pp. 1136-1143. ISSN 0103-5053.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-50532008000600013.

A molecularly imprinted organically modified silica was prepared through a simple sol-gel procedure, and evaluated as specific sorbent for solid-phase extraction (SPE) of phenobarbital from aqueous and forensic samples. The analytical properties of the molecularly imprinted silica (MIS, non-imprinted sílica) were initially evaluated and the MIS was found to be specific towards the target species: the imprinting factor IF, measured as the ratio between phenobarbital peak areas in the MIS and NIS chromatograms, was estimated as 58. This value is considerably higher than those usually found for conventional methacrylate-based molecularly imprinted sorbents and suggests that non-specific analyte/sorbent interactions are insignificant in the MIS. This material is applied to the isolation of phenobarbital from aqueous samples and plasma; detection limit of 10 and 62 µg mL-1 was achieved for the former samples, respectively.
