Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymer-coated bacterial cellulose nanofibers have been prepared by immersing solvent treated-bacterial cellulose into a dilute pre-polymerization mixture solution prior to the polymerization process. The quercetin-imprinted polymer coating bacterial cellulose (QIP-BC) nanofibers show discrete nanoparticles encapsulated along the BC nanofibers. The binding capacity of dried QIP-BC was approximately 3 mg per gram of the polymer. The obtained results indicated that QIP-BC nanofibers provided a three fold higher recognition ability for quercetin than quercetin-imprinted nanospheres. This technique can be easily used to combine two fascinating materials like BC nanofibers and molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) to afford promising polymer composites that are useful in various innovative applications in biomedical, pharmaceutical, and industrial sectors
