The technology of molecular imprinting permits recognition sites to be inserted into a polymeric material through the polymerisation of a monomer in the presence of a template, or through the dissolution of a preformed polymer in a solution containing the template and then crosslinking or phase inversion so as to obtain the matrix-template complex. This paper will focus on the application of both techniques in the realisation of polymeric membranes with molecular recognition properties in aqueous environments.
