A library of new polymerizable functional cross-linking monomers designed for complexation with the oxyanionic moiety of the chemotherapeutic drug methotrexate (MTX). The 1H NMR binding study of a variety of synthetic receptors and the compilation of the obtained results lead to the identification of monomers combining interactive functionality and a cross-linking format, specific binding receptors for dicarboxylate-containing drugs. Robust molecular recognition elements with antibody-like ability to bind and discriminate between molecules or other structures can today be synthesized using molecular imprinting techniques.i,ii Over the years, molecular imprinting of polymer matrixes has become a widely used approach to generate macromolecular receptors for target molecules.iii The non-covalent approach involves complexation in a solution of target molecules (templates) with functional monomers through supramolecular interaction, followed by a polymerization reaction with an excess of cross-linkers.iv Removal of the templates leaves behind specific recognition sites that are complementary to the template in terms of its shape, size and functionality in the polymer network. The use of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) carries many applications in several areas.v An important analytical application is the use of MIPs as chromatographic devices for separating chemically similar They are also exploited in the field of organic synthesis for their catalytic and enantio-selective potentialvii and as substitute for biological target receptors in dynamic combinatorial chemistry.viii Drug discovery by dynamic combinatorial chemistryix, classically involves the assembly of building blocks in the presence of a target receptor or enzyme that creates a driving force favoring the formation of the best-binding constituent.x The presence of a targeted enzyme in the synthetic reaction mixture results in greater amounts of efficient inhibitors (target-accelerated synthesis)xi or shifts the synthetic equilibrium (dynamic combinatorial libraries, DCC)xii by binding tightly the strongest target binders. However, the biological receptors used in this approach are usually only stable over a small temperature range and in a specific media. Organic solvents, temperature, pH, exposition to light-waves and oxidative environments are among the conditions that must be carefully taken into consideration when using a biological receptor. These soft conditions restrict the field of usable functional reactants and obtainable products. The use of MIPs as a substitute for biological target receptors could allow a broader range of conditions for the DCC technique. MIPs are stable even at extreme temperatures and at pH where natural enzymes would degrade.xiii Their use in combinatorial chemistry would surpass the limits encountered so far. To tailor MIPs with homogeneous cavities crafted for maximizing recognition towards a specific type of chemical structure, we initiated a procedure of systematic template-moiety/receptor complexation analysis. Our approach involves a synthesis/binding study of a variety of receptors towards a specific ligand moiety. The obtained results allow us to select of hit-receptors possessing the best associations from the initial set of receptors. Compilation of data for various ligand moiety leads to the creation of broad libraries of polymerizable moiety-specific binding receptors available for the imprinting of drugs or other important compounds. Herein, we present a specific example of target-molecule which will lead to information about dicarboxylate containing molecules. We report the synthesis of a library of new polymerizable functional monomers designed for imprinting the chemotherapeutic drug methotrexate (MTX) shown in Figure 1. m-diaminopteridine N-Z-L-glutamic acid Figure 1. Structures of the target imprint drug (MTX) and of the two sub-structural models used in the Further, we describe the measurement of their relative affinities towards a MTX substructure template to identify specific properties that come to play in the creation of MTX-imprinted polyme The design of the library of novel functional monomers was based on a selection of three featuresthat are relevant for the creation of selective MIPs. First is the choice of bis-ureated binding functionalities, which exhibit strong affinity for dicarboxylate moieties.xiv The second feature is the selection of polymerizable end groups. We chose methacrylate functions, commonly used cross-linking chemical systems reknown for providing materials with good thermal stability.xv In all the monomers we designed, the methacrylate group is placed two carbons away from the H-bond donating ureas in order to prevent destabilization of the template/monomer complex during the polymerization process. The final feature is to design species with enhanced affinity for the MTX template by synthesizing a variety of selected di-(ureidoethylenemethacrylate) compounds, all differing by the chemical nature of their central spacer. As can be seen in Figure 2, the spacers we used in their length, rigidity, polarity and space filling. Subsequent study and comparison of the strengths of the monomer-template interactions makes possible the selection of "hit-monomers" possessing higher complexation affinity than other monomers. This lead to the identification of potent binding receptors for the MTX dicarboxylate moiety and also to the design of modifications to receptors for improving affinity. Weakly complexing receptors can be redirected for tests on other more suited moieties. The monomers were synthesized in one-pot reactions by N-hydro-C-alkylamino additions of a diamine
on the appropriate isocyanate. 1H NMR titrations were performed with the monomers 1 to 10 using the
substructural model bis(TBA)-N-Z-L-glutamate as the guest compound. The complexation-induced
chemical shift (CIS) of the urea protons of receptors 1 to 10 were monitored. Addition of increasing
amounts of bis(TBA)-N-Z-L-glutamate (0-10 equiv) to DMSO-d6 solutions of the functional receptors
allowed titration (Figures 3 and 4) from which we extracted the monomer/template interaction information (Table I). All titration data did fit well to 1:1 binding isotherms.xvi The competitive solvent DMSO-d6 prevented self-association of monomer and/or guest to occur in these systems. The monomers that gave rise to the weakest CIS are thoses harboring the shortest spacer, i.e. receptors 1 and 2.
Although their outer pair of N—H---O hydrogen bond with the carboxylate group of the guest do give
rise to significant CIS (1.71 ppm and 1.70 ppm respectively), it is not unexpected to observe a weaker
association of the inner proton considering that their respective spacers do not permit an ideal face-to-
face positioning with the propylenedicarboxylic substrate.

The other linear aliphatic monomers 3 to 6, with butylene to heptylene spacers gave similar hydrogen-
bonding interactions and led to more intense hydrogen bonding shifts. This aliphatic group of spacers
presents the attribute of being flexible and devoid of steric congestion, which gives them the advantage
of being adaptable for fitting to the substrate before rigidification into a polymerized structure.
Monomers 7 to 10 of the set of functionalized receptors carried more rigid, polar and/or sterical filling
properties not present in the six first cases. Surprisingly the p-phenylene monomer 7 gave rise to the
most intense binding and a very good fit to a 1:1 binding isotherm, although we did not anticipate this
monomer-N-Z-glutamate stoichiometry because of the convex-curved nature of the monomer (Figure
2). We anticipated flexible linear monomers with capacity to bend over the dicarboxylic glutarate
moiety (like receptors 3 to 7) or more rigid concave-shaped monomers (receptors 8 to 10) to satisfy the
criteria of face-to-face 1:1 complementarity.
Figure 3. 1H NMR spectra obtained for the complexation of receptor 7 with N-Z-glutamic acid.
A reasonable interpretation of the result is formation of 2:2 or 6:6 binding suprastructures. The p-
xylylene type receptor 9 interacted strongly with the dicarboxy moiety in a 1:1 binding manner as
already demonstrated.xvii The monomer/guest association in such a case was due to the length and shape
of the spacer between the ureas on the receptors allowing suitable complementarity.xviii Receptor 8
showed lower 1H shift upon titration likely due to the bulky nature of the m-xylylene. Receptor 10, the
most rigid and inflexible compound of the list is an informative example to consider in this monomer
assembling study for two reasons: 1) although the inner protons are located in α-position of an electron-
withdrawing aromatic ring making them much more acidic, their binding does not result in CIS as high
as the outer protons due to inappropriate spacer length 2) the electron-withdrawing nature of the urea
substituent (including the spacer itself) increases the acidity of the urea protons and, hence,
compensates for the length by increasing the magnitude of association. Globally, monomers 3 to 6
showed effective binding strength although the aliphatic nature of their spacers did not allow binding as
intense as monomers 7 to 10 containing phenylene or xylylene spacers. Receptors 1 and 2 appear to be
too short and hence not well-suited ti binding bis(TBA)-N-Z-glutamate.

as a function of N-Z-L-glutamate guest compound concentration in DMSO-d6. The new receptors represent an assortment of units to choose from for crafting polymers with the desired properties. Among these properties, the various solubility, structural and electronic compatibility of the monomers increase their value as MIP conception agents to make them match in various co-monomer/solvent/substrate environments. The new cross-linking receptors could in addition offer the possibility to control the porosity and rigidity of the polymeric matrixes to be prepared. The strategy for monomer design has been previously investigated to combine interactive monomer functionality with a cross-linking format, giving as a result noncovalent molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) with improved performance.4 This strategy was explored under the premise that more
functionality could be introduced without suffering performance losses due to reduced cross-linking.
The results obtained from 1H chemical shift studies of receptors 1-10 in binding bis(TBA)-N-Z-
glutamate allowed the design of to the initial receptors. We created receptors 11 and 12 (Figure 2),
styrene-analogues of the flexible aliphatic receptors 3 and 5 in order to benefit from the spacer's nature
while increasing the acidity of the urea protons. We also created monomers 13 and 14 which are
modified versions of the m-xylylene receptor 8, a rigid and very acidic m-phenylene receptor 15, as well
as 16 , a receptor that offers both the characteristics of possessing polymerizable units that are separated
from the binding ureas and to possess enhanced acidic urea protons (Figure 2). In addition, the stilbene
nature of 16 provides it with a controllable conformational change achievable by external stimulation
such as UV-irradiation This last feature makes it a very attractive compound for use in polymer
matrixes with switchable-recognition cavities, a use that is especially interesting since there were only
few reports concerning photo-switchable receptor for molecules. In all cases, the CIS were increased
compared to the ones of the original receptors versions. Hence, although some receptors from the
second set lack the two carbons long spacing between the polymerizable-extremity and the H-binding
urea found in the initial set, the greater H-bonding magnitude could compensate the potential
thermodynamic complex-instability encountered during the polymerization process. Interestingly, the
m-xylylene monomer 14 showed more CIS magnitude than its tetramethyl-substituted analogue 13,
espacially as to the inner 1Hs where the difference of magnitude is notable. Altough they share the same
skeletal architecture and length between the ureas, the presence of the methyl groups may twist the
conformation of receptor 13, not allowing it to get the well-matched conformation. The stilbene receptor
16 demonstrated CIS greater than those obtained for any of the other 15 compounds developed. On the
basis of those results and considering the stilbene features discussed above, we are looking forward to
use 16 as an interesting compound in MIP preparations to come. An important factor to consider in
order to reduce the problem of receptor's non-specificity for their target-moiety encountered in
molecular imprinting is to design monomers exhibiting from weak to non-existent attraction for the
other moiety of the template. As receptors 1-16 were designed to complex the dicarboxylate part of
MTX, we also evaluated the H-binding affinity of our monomers towards the diaminopteridine group as
can be seen in Figure 5. The comparison of the chemical shifts of the receptor's urea protons as a
function of N-Z-L-Glutamate conc. vs. triamterene conc. clearly shows the specificity of the bis-ureated
receptor for the dicarboxylate moiety over the diaminopteridine one, both of which are present on an
MTX template.

Z-L- Glu conc. (red) and triamteren conc. (blue) showing the specificity of the bis-ureated receptors for the dicarboxylic moiety of the MTX drug. In conclusion, we have developed a family of new cross-linking agents that are readily co-
polymerizable under mild conditions. The functionalized bis-ureated receptors 1 to 16 whose assemble
properties on a substructural model of the chemotherapeutic drug MTX were investigated, offer a
variety of monomers for use in MIP applications. Given that a large range of biologically important
molecules contain oxyanion functionality, the monomers may be selected for tests on other imprinting molecules. The choice of monomer for the creation of MIPs is an important feature and may depend on several factors including the desired porosity of the polymeric matrix, compatibility and solubility in solvent systems, binding magnitude of the molded cavities or necessity to generate or remove π-bindings/Van der Waals and other interactions type occurrence. All these factors and others which can be controlled by proper monomer selection, require access to a vast library of functionalized units in order to create the desired material properties. The new 16 compounds may be applied for the creation of MIPs used in chromatography technology and analytical chemistry or into the field of catalysis where the formation of imprint's analogues by dynamic combinatorial chemistry would be the ultimate achievement. In future work, the result of these studies will serve to build a correlation between the monomers H-bonding interaction upon complexation and the retention in HPLC columns of the monomers-based MIPs. The presented methodology is under development and might lead to creation of new MIPs with specific, catalytically active imprinted sites for several drugs. Experimental Section.

Synthesis of Bis-tetrabutylammonium-N-Z-L-glutamate.
N-Z-L-Glutamic acid (4 mmol) was dissolved in methanol (70 mL) and 1 M methanolic
tetrabutylammonium hydroxide (8 mmol) was added in one portion. The solution was stirred at ambient
temperature for 1 h, and then the solvent was removed in vacuo. The oily residue was dried under high
vacuum pump at 75 °C for a period of 18 hrs. and wasn't any further purified.
1H NMR Titrations
Proton NMR spectroscopy-based titration studies were carried out using a Bruker Avance AMX 300
spectrometer at 300 MHz. The receptor solutions were titrated by adding known quantities of a
concentrated solution of the bis(TBA) N-Z-L-Glutamate anions. Increasing the concentration of anion in
the host-guest mixture solution induced a clear downfield shift in the NH peak of the receptor's ureas.
Fitting the observed data points to a 1:1 binding profile, using Microcal Origin 6.0, gave the
extrapolated complex induced chemical shifts.
