Using a modified method in the preparation of an imprinted polymer, we report here the synthesis of a uranyl-imprinted copolymer of chloroacrylic acid and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate, which—after removal of the template—selectively extracts uranium from dilute aqueous solution over a range of +2, +3 and +4 competitor metal ions.
