Abstract
Molecular imprinting technology allows synthesis of polymers with specific recognition ability towards target pollutants, which show potential to selectively remove Highly Toxic Organic Pollutants (HTOPs) in the presence of common organic matrices that are thousands of times more abundant than the targets. This feature article summarizes the current development of molecular imprinting for removing HTOPs from polluted water, with a special emphasis on the application of molecularly imprinted polymers to improve the efficiency of photocatalytic and biological degradation of HTOPs in wastewater.
