Abstract: The explosive, warfare agent, and toxin worldwide threats are important hazardous determinants for a safe living environment. The need for better methods of determinations of these compounds generates a strong demand for sensitive, selective, and fast sensing systems. Typically, biorecognition receptors, like enzymes or antibodies, are used to devise biosensors for selective determinations of these compounds. However, these biosensors suffer from several deficiencies. Therefore, synthetic receptors, and particularly those using the concept of molecular ­imprinting, are more and more often being devised as alternatives of the bioreceptors. Among them, the most popular now are molecularly imprinted materials. The present chapter critically evaluates achievements in the development of chemosensing using the imprinting idea for selective determination of biohazardous compounds. Different methods of preparation of synthetic imprinted recognition receptors are scrutinized and various platforms of analytical signal transduction are assessed
