To assess the potential risks associated with the environmental exposure of beta-lactam antibiotics (BLAs), the monitoring of the occurrence, distribution, and fate of these emerging contaminants in the environment is required. Herein, we demonstrate a molecularly imprinted solid-phase extraction (MISPE) method for selective and reliable screening of trace BLAs in river and tap water. By developing a low-temperature photopolymerization, highly selective molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for five BLAs (penicillin G, amoxicillin, ampicillin, nafcillin and mezlocillin) were synthesized. Nafcillin was chosen as a pseudo template to make the MIP sorbent (Nafc-MIP), which was used in pseudo-template MISPE for preconcentration of the other four BLAs from river and tap water. The application of pseudo-template MISPE overcomes the template bleeding, which significantly elevates the sample background and restricts the application of MIP for detection of the target BLA below 2 microg/L. The average recoveries of BLAs are in the range of 60-90% when Nafc-MIP was adopted as the selective MISPE sorbent. The developed method was validated, and applied to the screening of trace beta-lactam antibiotics in river and tap water. The linearity of the calibration curve for each BLA was observed over the range of 0.1-20 microg/L (r>0.998). The beta-lactam antibiotics were found within the range of 0-9.56 microg/L in river water at the downstream of antibiotics manufacturers, and none were detected in the tap water.
