Abstract: Indoor and outdoor exposure to plastic-derived xenoestrogens, such as phthalates and phenolic compounds, can adversely affect endocrine and reproductive systems in humans and wildlife. To accomplish the extraction of plastic-derived xenoestrogens from environmental samples, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been proved to be selective, efficient, and reliable sorbents. Despite some problems associated with the use of MIPs as sorbents, these have been found to be of considerable interest due to their advantages of selectivity, easy synthetic procedures, and better stability over commercially available solid sorbents. Modifications in their synthetic strategies are continuously in progress and new approaches are being made through graphene oxide substrates, nanostructured platforms, nanoferrites, cryogels, and co-electropolymerization to design better sorbents. Apart from this, efforts to create molecularly imprinted solid phase microextraction (SPME) fibers have also been successful in improving the efficiency of the methodology. In future, the use of MIPs developed from advanced synthetic strategies, or as sorbents for more robust techniques like SPME and microextraction on packed sorbents, will add new horizons to explore the potential of MIPs in the field of plastic-derived xenoestrogens. This review presents various challenges, as well as progress and prospects associated with the extraction of plastic-derived phthalates and phenolic compounds using molecularly imprinted sorbents
