Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are defined as synthetic polymer materials possessing various biomimetic functions including molecular recognition ability, catalytic activity, and stimuli-responsive functions. MIPs can be prepared by forming complexes with a template molecule (target molecule or its derivative) and a functional monomer(s) that either covalently links or non-covalently interacts with the template molecule followed by co-polymerization in the presence of cross-linker. After polymerization, the template molecule is removed, leaving behind binding cavities complementary in size, shape, and functional group assembly to the template molecule (Fig. 1)
