Adsorption: Fundamental Processes and Applications, Volume 33 in the Interface Science and Technology Series, discusses the great technological importance of adsorption and describes how adsorbents are used on a large scale as desiccants, catalysts, catalyst supports, in the separation of gases, the purification of liquids, pollution control, and in respiratory protection. Finally, it explores how adsorption phenomena play a vital role in many solid-state reactions and biological mechanisms, as well as stressing the importance of the widespread use of adsorption techniques in the characterization of surface properties and the texture of fine powders.

    Molecular imprinted technology using in biosensing/bioanalysis: A review

    Detection strategies based on molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) is favored in biotechnology as promising alternatives to natural receptors. This behavior is consequence of cavities that has close agreement with target species in the polymer matrix and as expected the subsequent removal of template compounds via washing lead to creation of pre-designed channel to accept target species. MIPs can improve the detection sensitivity and recognition selectivity toward the analyte, which subsequently provides a key tool for chemo/bioanalysis in complex media with distinguished benefits such as easy operation, low cost, high selectivity and stability/durability. MIP-base material has greatly advanced in biosensing and bioanalytical of environmental pollutants and drugs and also in biomarkers systems. This review highlights the MIP-based development in sensing methods.
