This study was carried out by Gallego-Gallegos et al. to determine the application of molecular imprinting technology in the preparation of a chromatographic stationary phase of specific affinity for speciation purposes. The study aimed to develop a simple, selective, rapid, and sensitive method for the quantitative determination of organotin compounds in the environment. Speciation for this type of compound is usually done using gas chromatography, because of good resolution and sensitivity (Mattiasson et al. 1999). However, organotin compounds (OTCs) have poor volatility and thus often require the initial derivatization step (Gallego-Gallegos et al. 2010).
