Abstract: Molecular imprinting technology is an attractive approach of creating recognition sites in polymeric materials by using the templating approach found in many natural systems. These recognition sites have memory to the target molecule that enables selective recognition of the template species. Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been used in a wide range of areas including separation and isolation, catalysis, chemical sensing, and drug delivery. This review aims at highlight the recent advances in the application of molecular imprinting technology for inorganic and small organic anion recognition in aqueous media.
