Abstract: Molecular imprinting is a technique for the fabrication of biomimetic polymeric recognition sites or ''plastic antibodies/receptors'' which is attracting rapidly increasing interest. By this technology, recognition matrices can be prepared which possess high substrate selectivity and specificity. In the development of this technology, several applications have been foreseen in which imprinted materials may be exchanged for natural recognition elements. Thus, molecularly imprinted polymers have been used as antibody/receptor binding mimics in immunoassay-type analyses, as enzyme mimics in catalytic applications and as recognition matrices in biosensors. The best developed application area for imprinted materials, though, has been as stationary phases for chromatography, in general, and chiral chromatography, in particular. This review seeks to highlight some of the more intriguing advantages of the technique as well as pointing out some of the difficulties encountered. The prospects for future development will also be considered. (C) 1998 Wiley-Liss, Inc
