Molecules leave their mark: Imprinting technique creates plastic receptors that grab specific chemicals.
Publication date: 2000
Journal: Science News
Abstract: Like tiny locks, receptors in biology respond exclusively to the specific molecules that serve as miniature keys. Now using this biochemical machinery as a model for a variety of applications, scientists are building the locks themselves. The new technique--called molecular imprinting--is discussed.
