Plastic antibodies are a class of artificial receptors which can be obtained from molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) nanoparticles. These materials can be used to recognize and neutralize toxic molecules or to many different applications.Find out everything about MIP nanoparticles and their possible uses in this article: http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F5346_2012_24
Hydrogels are viscoelastic materials which can incorporate a huge amount of water (up to 99%!). This make them suitable for various biological applications, including pesticide delivery. To find out how these materials can be applied as delivery vehicles of pesticides, have a look at this article!
