The researchers' attention is to study the development of suitable receptors is with high selectivity and affinity for bioactive species. Among these, the molecularly imprinted polymers are involved in the development of sensors and the electrochemical methods to quantify amino acids. Molecular printing of polymers is a commonly used technique in practice due to its stability, low cost and easy process compared to the biological receptors. Various molecularly printed polymers have been used for the sensitive detection of amino acids, such as poly (methacrylic acid), acrylamide and trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate, 3- (triethoxysilyl) propyl amines, demonstrating that these sensors show significant advances in various fields of use, such as: chemistry, medicine, pharmacy, and biochemistry.
