Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) are a rapidly evolving area of research with vast potential applications in a variety of fields, such as environmental monitoring, food safety, clinical diagnosis, and drug delivery. MIPs are synthetic materials with selective recognition sites that are designed to mimic the binding ability of natural biological receptors. The MIPs structure can greatly enhance their performance, leading to better selectivity, sensitivity, and stability. The development of MIPs with advanced properties is a promising research area that is gaining increasing attention. In this context, this special issue in the MDPI Polymers journal on MIPs would provide a valuable platform to showcase the latest research advances, methods, and applications in this field.
The issue will showcase the original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that cover various aspects of MIP-based sensing, including the design and synthesis of MIPs, the characterization of their performance, and the development of sensing platforms that incorporate MIPs. The articles also address important challenges in the field, such as the optimization of MIP selectivity and sensitivity, the integration of MIPs with transducers and readout systems, and the application of MIPs in complex matrices.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
