This book is divided into 5 sections starting with an historic perspective and fundamental aspects on the synthesis and recognition by imprinted polymers. The second section contains 8 up-to-date overview chapters on current approaches to molecular and ion imprinting. This is followed by two chapters on new material morphologies and in the last two sections various analytical applications of imprinted polymers are given, with the last four chapters devoted to the promising field of imprinted polymers in chemical sensors. The authors of this volume have widely different backgrounds; mainly polymer chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry and analytical chemistry, which means that this book has an interdisciplinary character and should appeal to a broad audience.

This handbook provides a useful guide to preparing molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for diverse practical applications. The first chapter covers the general aspects of molecular imprinting technology. The following chapters focus on specific applications, such as MIPs for sample concentration, MIPs for chromatography and related techniques, MIPs as sensor components, MIPs as traps for medical and bioremediation, MIPs as catalysts and artificial enzymes, and MIPs as components of drug delivery systems. All chapters of the handbook follow a common structure: interest of the MIP approach for that application specific aspects of the synthesis of MIPs for this aim (requirements and general recipes) representative examples of MIPs and their performance for that application a look to the future.

Biosensors are making a large impact in environmental, food, biomedical, and other applications. In comparison to standard analytical detection methods, such as minimal sample preparation and handling, they offer advantages including real time detection, rapid detection of the analytes of concern, use of non-skilled personnel, and portability. The aim of this book is to focus on research related to the rapid detection of agents and weapons of bioterrorism and provide a comprehensive review of the research topics most pertinent to advancing devices applicable to the rapid real-time detection of toxicants such as microbes, pathogens, toxins, or nerve gases. The ongoing war on terrorism and the rising security concerns are driving the need for newer faster biosensors against bio-warfare agents for both military and civil defence applications. The volume brings together contributions from the most eminent international researchers in the field, covering various aspects of work not so far published in any scientific journal and often going beyond the “state of art “ . Readers of these review articles will learn new technological schemes that can lead to the construction of devices that will minimize the risk of bio-terrorism.

Can scientists and engineers replicate Nature and develop systems that operate in extreme environments? Bio-inspiration is an established concept which is developing to meet the needs of the many challenges we face particularly in defence and security. This book explores the potential of bio-inspired materials and sensing systems together with examples of how they are being implemented. It is not an exhaustive study of the subject but provides an overview of how bio-inspired or -derived approaches can be used to enhance components, systems and systems of systems for defence and security applications. Readers will gain an awareness of the complexity and versatility of bio-inspired components as well as an understanding of how these technologies can be applied in a variety of operational scenarios. Consideration is given to using a conceptual model that can be deployed in distributed or autonomous operations. Using this model, bio-inspiration with behavioural science plays a major role in identification, movement, searching strategies and pattern recognition for chemical and biological detection. Examples focus on both learning new things from nature that have application to the defence and security areas and adapting known discoveries for practical use by these communities. This graduate level monograph provides an increased awareness of the need for more sophisticated, networked sensors and systems in the defence and security communities and will be of interest to both specialists in this area and science and technology generalists -- Back cover.

This volume contains the proceedings of two symposia held at the 2002 MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco. Molecular imprinting (MI) technology has attracted much attention and enjoyed tremendous development over the past decade. MI technology enables the preparation of materials with host sites that recognize specific guest molecules, analogous to the "lock-and-key" paradigm of antibodies and enzymes. Advantages of molecularly imprinted materials include: a degree of specificity approaching that of antibodies but with much greater temporal and thermal stability; rapid development because precise molecular design and chemical synthesis are unnecessary; and wide applicability because materials may be imprinted with almost any shape-persistent analyte of interest. Papers from Symposium M, "Molecularly Imprinted Materials, focus primarily on the fabrication of functional materials and devices based on MI materials. Studies are presented not only by experts in MI, but more importantly, by materials scientists integrating molecular imprinting with cutting-edge techniques in microfabrication and nanotechnology.
