Abstract: This article reviews the progress and developments achieved in the past five years (20002005) in the application of optical analytical techniques to the evaluation of molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) characteristics. The MIP binding efficiency, recognition processes and selectivity have been intensively studied by optical means due to the general high sensitivity and simplicity of the utilisation of optical techniques. In addition, recent progress in the covalent linkage of MIPs to optical transducers has allowed for the realisation of highly efficient and robust optical MIP-based molecular recognition sensors. The review provides insight into the various approaches to the optical interrogation of MIPs, and is organised according to the type of optical technique employed (fluorescence, UV/Vis and infrared spectroscopy, surface plasmon resonance, chemiluminescence, refractive interference spectroscopy and Raman scattering) and the detailed strategies applied. The review also covers the recent progress achieved in the area of optical sensors based on MIPs.
