A new biomimetic sensor was prepared on carbon paste with magnetic molecularly imprinted polymer (mag-MIP) for sensitive and selective detection of methyl green dye. The mag-MIP was synthesized using a functional monomer that was selected before by computational simulation. A mag-NIP (magnetic non-imprinted polymer) control material was also prepared for comparative purposes. Modeling adsorption studied revealed that the dye polymer interface followed pseudo-first order kinetics and that maximum adsorption (Q(m)) of the dye on mag-MIP was 3.13 mg g(-1), while the value for mag-NIP was 1.58 mg g(-1). The selective material was used as a sensing spot in fabrication of an electrochemical sensor based on modified carbon paste. For electrochemical analysis, the best achievement of the sensor was acquire by tack together a paste with 6.7% (w/w) of mag-MIP and using square-wave adsorptive anodic stripping voltammetry (SWAdASV) in 0.1 mol L-1 phosphate buffer (pH 7.0), with an applied potential (E-appl) of 0.3 V vs. Ag vertical bar AgClsat during an adsorption time (T-ads) of 120 s. The results were obtained under optimized conditions in which sensor provided a linear concentration range of methyl green from 9.9 x 10(-8) to 1.8 x 10(-6) mol L-1, with a limit of detection (LOD) of 1.0 x 10(-8) mol L-1 and a satisfactory relative standard deviation (RSD) of 4.3% (n = 15). The proposed sensor was applying using two spiked river water samples, obtaining recoveries ranging from 93% to 103%. The proposed method exhibits excellent precision also high reliability and proved to be an alternative method for the quantification of methyl green in real samples. (AU)
