Series: Polymer Science and Technology
BISAC: TEC055000

In the past years, there has been growing interest in the development of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). Molecular imprinting technology have been widely used in different fields including pharmaceutical biotechnological and chemical industries, water purification and food and environment analysis. This book discusses the challenges, uses and prospects of MIPs. Chapter One provides an overview of the different applications of the molecularly imprinted polymers in the field of food science. Chapter Two highlights some of the examples of MIP synthesis and use, without covering the extensive literature available and providing a broad view of the field. Chapter Three analyzes trends in the molecular imprinting of small molecules. (Imprint: Nova)
