This research mainly purposes the reducing amount of herbicides used in agriculture, protect human from water carried herbicides which one of the main pollutants that cause serious problems by Molecular Imprinting Technology (MIT) applied for the synthesis of environmental pollutants such as (Glyphosate and Nominee) herbicides. In this study different monomer ratios of Methacrylic acid (MAA) with Styrene (ST) as two function monomers were copolymerized with mixture of; Ethylene Glycol Dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as cross-linker, methanol or chloroform as solvent, and two different types of herbicides as template this mixture initiated by gamma radiation effect at optimum dose 40 KGY. Characterization was performed by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Fourier Transfer Infrared (FTIR), X-Rays Diffraction (XRD), Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Ultraviolet (UV) to study the effect of different parameter in acidic & basic medium at 30°C and thermal study from 30°C-80°C. It give good releasing at 90 /10 MAA/ST in two different types of herbicides after 24 h. From these results, it showed that from 90 to 99% approximately of herbicides can release from Molecular Imprinting Copolymer (MIC).
