ABSTRACT In this paper, we demonstrated an efficient and robust route to the preparation of well-defined molecularly imprinted polymer based on reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization and click chemistry. The alkyne terminated RAFT chain transfer agent was first synthesized, and then click reaction was used to graft RAFT agent onto the surface of silica particles which was modified by azide. Finally, imprinted thin film was prepared in the presence of 2,4-dichlorophenol as the template. The imprinted beads were demonstrated with a homogeneous polymer films (thickness of about 2.27 nm), and exhibited thermal stability under 255°C. The as-synthesized product showed obvious molecular imprinting effects towards the template, fast template rebinding kinetics and an appreciable selectivity over structurally related compounds.

    ABSTRACT: Herein, we present a survey of the literature covering the development of molecular imprinting science and technology over the years 2004–2011. In total, 3779 references to the original papers, reviews, edited volumes and monographs from this period are included, along with recently identified uncited materials from prior to 2004, which were omitted in the first instalment of this series covering the years 1930–2003. In the presentation of the assembled references, a section presenting reviews and monographs covering the area is followed by sections describing fundamental aspects of molecular imprinting including the development of novel polymer formats. Thereafter, literature describing efforts to apply these polymeric materials to a range of application areas is presented. Current trends and areas of rapid development are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A novel water-compatible fenitrothion imprinted polymer was prepared on Au nanoparticles (AuNPs) by click chemistry and reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) precipitation polymerization (RAFTPP). The RAFT chain-transfer agent was synthesized on the surface of AuNPs using click chemistry, then an imprinted polymer with hydrophilic polymer brushes was prepared on the RAFT chain-transfer agent modified AuNPs by RAFTPP, mediated by hydrophilic polyethylene glycol macromolecular cochain-transfer agent. The obtained molecularly imprinted material showed improved accessibility to fenitrothion and recognition property in water medium. When the material was immobilized on an ionic liquid functionalized graphene coated glassy carbon electrode for the electrochemical determination of fenitrothion, the resulting electrochemical sensor presented linear response in the range of 0.01-5μM, with a sensitivity of 6.1μA/μMmm(2). The low limit of detection was 8nM (S/N=3). The sensor was successfully applied to the determination of real samples and the recovery for standard added was 95-108%.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Recent reports indicate that the sentinel node, defined as the first regional lymph node to receive lymphatic fluid from the breast, accurately represents the metastatic status of the primary breast cancer. However, routine single section examination of the regional nodes, including the sentinel node, underestimates the true incidence of metastases. The goal of this study is to determine whether multiple sectioning of sentinel nodes will detect occult metastases in operable breast cancer. Methods: Nineteen patients with invasive breast cancers were injected with technetium-99m sulfur colloid solution around the tumor or at the biopsy site before lumpectomy and axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) or mastectomy. The labeled sentinel lymph nodes (SLND) were bivalved, and a central section was taken for hematoxylin and eosin (H & E) examination. The sentinel nodes of 13 patients, which were reported to be negative for metastases, were serially sectioned at 0.5-mm intervals and stained with H & E and a cytokeratin stain, CAM 5.2. Results: In the 13 node-negative patients, occult metastases were found in the sentinel nodes of 3 patients (23%). Two were seen on H & E and one by cytokeratin stain. The mean numbers of SLND and ALND in this series were 2.6 and 12.5, respectively, and the average number of sections for the two groups was 14 and 1, respectively. Conclusion: Multiple sectioning of the sentinel node or nodes detects occult metastases and changes the staging of breast cancer.
