One Line Description
Brings together innovative methodologies and strategies adopted in the R & D of advanced molecularly imprinted polymers (MIP)

The book will have a wide readership including researchers from diverse backgrounds such as physics, chemistry and chemical engineering, materials science and nanotechnology
engineering, electrical and computer engineering, biomedical engineering, environmental sciences, food sciences, life sciences, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, medicine, military science, and biotechnology. Post-graduate and graduate students will find the book very
illuminating as well.

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are a thoughtful, functional material because of their potential implications in diverse research fields. These materials are considered artificial recognition elements and are comprehensively evaluated in this book as advanced smart materials for separation, environmental and biomedical sciences, and biosensor applications.
The 15 chapters written by subject-matter experts are divided into two main sections: Strategies for affinity materials and rational design of MIPs for advanced applications.
Part 1 focuses on recent advances in producing MIPs for sample design, preparation and characterizations and include chapters on: A combination of solvent-free sample preparation techniques and MIP nanomaterials; fluorescent molecularly imprinted materials; novel applications of imprinted materials as micro- and nanotraps for the purpose of solid phase extraction; carbonaceous imprinted materials with attractive applications for selective and specific analysis; and the use of imprinted materials as fiber optic sensor platform.
In Part 2, the authors detail the importance and novelty of the creation of recognition imprinted on the materials and surfaces of sensors in biomedical, environmental and
food safety applications, for example, microbial detection, drug delivery and controlled release applications; micro-cantilever sensor systems; imprinted materials for chemical
vapor sensing of volatile organic compounds in human body; as well as a pioneering and comprehensive review of virus monitoring.
