Conclusions

In summary, molecularly imprinted polymers have much to offer to the area of affinity separation. Their highly attractive physico-chemical properties allied to their impressive molecular recognition properties make them particularly well suited for application in a number of important areas, including chromatography, solid-phase extraction, capillary electrophoresis and membrane separations. The period of hitherto unknown expansion, which the molecular imprinting field is currently enjoying, bodes well for the future, and molecularly imprinted polymers will surely play an ever increasing part in affinity separation as the molecular imprinting field matures further.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
