Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) are designed to capture and extract specific molecular targets. Hundreds of thousands of different molecules can be specifically bound. These MIPs can bind molecules from fluids and gases within a wide temperature and pH range as long as the target molecule is brought into contact with the polymer. A step-change proprietary technique has been developed to collapse the initial polymer design time frame from 1-2 years to 1-2 weeks, and increasing the batch production of polymer from milligrams to kilograms (proven) and potentially to tonnes.
