Abstract: The recent developments in the design, preparation and characteristics of molecularly imprinted polymers and the future evolution of molecular imprinting technique were briefly reviewed. Process and methods: The principle and feature of molecular imprinting technique was generally described, and some application fields and examples were introduced with the emphasis on the design, preparation and characteristics of molecularly imprinted polymers. The typical problems involved in the existing molecular imprinting technique were presented. Results and application range: an a kind of novel and efficient approach to prepare molecularly imprinted polymers with high affinity, selectivity and stability, molecular imprinting technique has attracted considerable attentions from scientists and engineers. Molecularly imprinted polymers will possess promising application future in the separation and analysis, biomimetic sensors and enzyme mimics catalysis.
