In this study, molecularly imprinted polymer membranes were synthesized for the recognition and adsorption of quercetin. For this, quercetin imprinted polymeric membranes [p(HEMA-MAH)] (Poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate-co-N-methacryloly-l-histidinemethylester) were synthesized by UV polymerization technique using HEMA and MAH as monomers. Synthesized polymeric membranes were characterized with SEM, FTIR and swelling test. Characterized membranes were used for the direct adsorption of quercetin in a batch system. Quercetin adsorption conditions were optimized by using the quercetin imprinted polymeric membrane by altering the pH, temperature and initial quercetin concentration of the adsorption medium. Effect of adsorption time was also studied for up to 180 min. The optimum pH and temperature was determined between 4.0 and 45 °C. Maximum adsorbed amount of quercetin onto quercetin imprinted poly(HEMA-MAH) membrane was found to be as 299.6 mg/g membrane using the initial quercetin concentration of 2.0 mg/ml. Adsorbed quercetin was desorbed from the polymeric membranes with isopropyl alcohol with desorption yield of 98.3%. and repeated usability of the quercetin imprinted polymeric membranes was fallowed for 7 adsorption/desorption cycles. At the end of the 7 reuse, quercetin adsorption capacity of the quercetin imprinted poly(HEMA-MAH) membranes decreased only about 10%.

Polymeric materials (usually organic) of large molecular weight which can be shaped by flow. Plastic usually refers to the final product with fillers, plasticizers, pigments, and stabilizers included (versus the resin, the homogeneous polymeric starting material). (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Organic polymeric materials which can be broken down by naturally occurring processes. This includes plastics created from bio-based or petrochemical-based materials.
A 15 kD "joining" peptide that forms one of the linkages between monomers of IMMUNOGLOBULIN A or IMMUNOGLOBULIN M in the formation of polymeric immunoglobulins. There is one J chain per one IgA dimer or one IgM pentamer. It is also involved in binding the polymeric immunoglobulins to POLYMERIC IMMUNOGLOBULIN RECEPTOR which is necessary for their transcytosis to the lumen. It is distinguished from the IMMUNOGLOBULIN JOINING REGION which is part of the IMMUNOGLOBULIN VARIABLE REGION of the immunoglobulin light and heavy chains.
Specialized Fc receptors (RECEPTORS, FC) for polymeric immunoglobulins, which mediate transcytosis of polymeric IMMUNOGLOBULIN A and IMMUNOGLOBULIN M into external secretions. They are found on the surfaces of epithelial cells and hepatocytes. After binding to IMMUNOGLOBULIN A, the receptor-ligand complex undergoes endocytosis, transport by vesicle, and secretion into the lumen by exocytosis. Before release, the part of the receptor (SECRETORY COMPONENT) that is bound to IMMUNOGLOBULIN A is proteolytically cleaved from its transmembrane tail. (From Rosen et al., The Dictionary of Immunology, 1989)
The transport of materials through a cell. It includes the uptake of materials by the cell (ENDOCYTOSIS), the movement of those materials through the cell, and the subsequent secretion of those materials (EXOCYTOSIS).
