Molecular imprinting is an attractive tool for the development of artificial recognition systems. Even non-covalent imprinting provides universal interaction centers for sensoric applications. The coated chemical sensors have high stabilities under harsh conditions in both the gas and liquid phases. With adequate efforts optical and mass-sensitive sensors (quartz crystal microbalance, QCM, surface acoustic wave detector, SAW) are suitable for analysis down to the ppb (nL/L) range. PAHs, isomer VOCs as well as complex oil mixtures are appropriate analytes.
