Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymer membranes, which possess the advantages of both molecular imprinting and membrane technology, have become one of the most attractive research areas in the field of molecular imprinting recentl. A brief introduction of molecular imprinting technology and molecularly imprinted polymer membranes is outlined. The main established molecularly imprinted membranes preparation methods including in situ polymerization, phase inversion, surface modification as well as electrochemical polymerization methods are reviewed. The separation properties of current imprinted membranes are analyzed and summarized followed by the applications of imprinted membranes in the areas of chiral separation, solid-phase extraction, herbicides detection, biosensor and so on. Finally, the further research directions of imprinted membranes are briefly discussed.
