Abstract: Molecular imprinting has come a long way since its modest beginnings more than sixty years ago. Within latest years in particular, the research interests in the area have surged. The development potential of MIP technology is high, since MIPs have showed physical robustness, high mechanical strength and stability in extremes of environment. More importantly, the MIPs have exhibited high selectivity and recognized activity to the template (the analyte). In this article, recent research of MIP technology was reviewed, details of preparation, application in separation, assays and sensors, biological molecular mimics and catalyst were introduced. Although the technique faced challenge in some aspects it has revealed enormous potential value in marketing.
