An efficient method to synthesize molecularly implinted polymers (MIPs) of xylenol orange is via precipitation polymerization. This is because via this method, highly selective spherical imprinted polymer with a good yield can be obtained. In this research, xylenol orange was applied as a template in the imprinting. While acrylic acid (AA) and divinylbenzene (DYB) were used as a functional monomer and a cross linker, respectively. The mole ratio of xylenol orange: AA: DYB used were set accordingly. The structure and surface morphology of the highly selective spherical xylenol orange MIPs and NIP were examined by using FTIR spectra and SEM micrograph. Based on the batch binding studies, the efficiency of imprinted polymers was evaluated. The highest extraction efficiency obtained from this research is 68.15% which is from the MIP-Ratio 2 (I :6:20). Hence, imprinted polymer Ratio 2 was chosen for further studies which i in evaluating the adsorption capacity of MIP-Ratio 2 in removing amount of dyes present in Lake water sample as well as in selectivity test ofMIP-Ratio 2 towards xylenol orange template.
