Abstract


The increased concerns about toxic effects of pesticides exposure led to necessity of its monitoring using rapid, sensitive and selective analytical tools. Traditional instrumental analytical techniques are often time consuming, labor intensive and need tedious prior separation or purification steps and expensive instrumentation. Besides those electrochemical sensors can overcome disadvantages of the traditional techniques, MIP-based sensors offer high degree of selectivity in binding target analytes in the presence of their interferents making them ideal for determination of pesticides in complex environmental samples. The scope of this review is to provide a general overview on MIPs field discussing first methods of MIP preparation and then dealing with applications of MIP based sensors in assessment of pesticides in environmental samples using voltammetry as transduction mechanism.
