Over the last few years, development of sensitive and selective sensors has rapidly grown for relatively low-cost monitoring of biomarkers and important chemical compounds in real samples having complex matrices. This is more critical for developing countries where equipped laboratories are also less established. Among selective sorbent materials, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) show promise as cost-effective and rugged artificial selective sorbents, which have a wide variety of applications in combination with sensors.

This Special Issue invites original research papers and review articles proposing developments in MIP-modified sensors from different basic and applied research topics, including new polymerization methods and MIP optimization, synthesis of nanoscale MIP materials as nanolayers or nanoparticles (nanogel, microgel), MIPs for new important targets in biological, environmental, food, and forensic samples (liquid, solid, semi-solid or gas samples), new sensory concepts and new sensory substrates (wearable, flexible, miniaturization, etc.), innovative sensor designs (sensor array, statistical procedures, modelling, fuzzy logic, wireless communication, etc.), novel modification procedures, etc. Research on scale-up and commercialization is also encouraged.
