By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Researchers detail new data in Laboratory Techniques. According to news reporting originating in Baoding, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A novel molecularly imprinted organic-inorganic hybrid polymer (MI-MAA/APTS) based on a dummy molecular imprinting technique and an organic-inorganic hybrid material technique was synthesised and used as a sorbent in solid-phase extraction for the selective isolation and determination of ofloxacin (OFL), lomefloxacin (LOM), and ciprofloxacin (CIP) in tilapia samples."
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Hebei University, "The MI-MAA/APTS sorbent was prepared from 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilanes (ARTS) as an inorganic source and methacrylic acid (MAA) as an organic source and exhibited high mechanical strength and special affinities to the analytes. A comparison of MI-MAA/APTS with other conventional sorbents (C-18 and HLB) showed that MI-MAA/APTS displayed good selectivity and affinity for OFL, LOM, and CIP, and the recoveries of the analytes at three spiked levels were in the range of 85.1-101.0%, with the relative standard deviations
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The presented MI-MAA/APTS-SPE-HPLC method could be potentially applied to the determination of fluoroquinolones (FQs) in complex fish samples."
