Description

Molecular Imprinted Polymer Composites: Synthesis, Characterisation and Applications covers the design of composite materials containing nanostructures and molecular imprinted polymers that has materialized the ever-sought out vision of homogeneous molecular imprinted polymers. The inherent high surface-to-volume ratio of nanostructures has served well in increasing the surface area of conventional bulk polymers. In recent decades, molecularly imprinted polymer nanocomposite materials have attracted much attention for their potential applications in the fields of separation science, sensing, drug delivery, waste water treatment and catalysis, hence this book provides a much needed update on progress.

Key Features

  • Includes information on molecular imprinted polymer composites and their potential for commercialization
  • Discusses their synthesis, characterization and applications
  • Analyzes the effect of incorporation of different nanostructures on the thermodynamic, kinetic and adsorption behavior of imprinted sorbents

Readership

MIPs have shown their tremendous potential being very selective and robust polymeric material for detection of many valuable analytes in different areas. Hence, scientific community related to chemistry, materials, biology areas may be the right target
