Abstract: The increased concern about toxic effects of pesticide exposure led to the necessity of its monitoring using rapid, sensitive and selective analytical tools because traditional instrumental techniques are often time-consuming, labor intensive and need tedious prior separation or purification steps. The electrochemical sensors can overcome disadvantages of the traditional techniques, MIP-based sensors offer a high degree of selectivity in binding target analytes in the presence of their interferents make them ideal for determination of pesticides in complex environmental samples. This review provides a general overview of MIP-based sensors in the assessment of pesticides in environmental samples using voltammetry as transduction mechanism.
