Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are designed to mimic the specific binding principle of enzymes to substrates or antigens to antibodies, while holding several advantages such as structure predictability, recognition specificity, easy preparation, low cost, high physical robustness, and thermal stability. Therefore, they have been widely applied in many fields including sample preparation (pretreatment), sensing analysis (chemo/biosensors), biomedicine, and environment/food analysis. To date, several strategies were developed for MIPs preparation, aiming to simplify the preparation process and/or improve the properties of the polymers, greatly broadening its usability. Read More
