Abstract

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have recently gained numerous applications in various domains, namely pharmaceutical, medical, environmental, food control, and homeland security. In particular, MIP-based bionanomaterials have created an attractive vision for biomedical applications by forming specific cavities for targets. Moreover, this is an inexpensive, quick, easy-to-use, highly sensitive, and selective sensing approach, especially for theranostics, diagnosis, and screening applications. Hence, this chapter aims at discussing the principle of molecular imprinting technique, the combination of MIP-based bionanomaterials, the recent advances and strategies in molecular imprinting methods, and their biomedical applications.
