Characterization of the heterogeneous binding site affinity distributions in molecularly imprinted polymers.


Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are polymers that can be tailored with affinity and selectivity for a molecule of interest. Offsetting the low cost and ease of preparation of MIPs is the presence of binding sites that vary widely in affinity and selectivity. Presented is a review of methods that take into account binding site heterogeneity when… (More)
