Abstract: A large number of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been investigated and reported over the last decade. Various templates have been successfully exploited and used, leading to significant advances in separation, adsorption, catalysis, sensing, and drug delivery. Among all the templates, small molecules have dominated in the synthesis of MIPs. In contrast, progress made in imprinting macromolecules has been slow, mainly due to the challenges presented by the size, structure and conformational fragility of biological macromolecules. In this review, we focus on discussing some key issues involved in the imprinting of macromolecules from recent publications. The similarity and difference between imprinting small molecules and macromolecules are highlighted. Other aspects relating to polymer design and function are also discussed
