Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are prepared by creating a three-dimensional polymeric matrix around a template molecule After the matrix is removed, complementary cavities with respect to shape and functional groups remain MIPs have been produced for applications in in vitro diagnostics, therapeutics and separations However, this promising technology still lacks widespread application because of issues related to large-scale production and optimization of the synthesis Recent developments in the area of MIP nanoparticles might offer solutions to several problems associated with performance and application This review discusses various approaches used in the preparation of MIP nanoparticles, focusing in particular on the issues associated with large-scale manufacture and implications for the performance of synthesized nanomaterials
